HC Deb 12 March 1936 vol 309 cc2326-7W

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he is aware that wines and cocktails were admitted to have been sold illegally during the last 10 years under a licence to sell medicated wines at Dagenham; and if he is satisfied that the system of inspection by Excise officers, or other plans adopted by the Excise Department, are adequate to prevent a repetition of the prolonged offence at Dagenham?


Excise wine licences cannot legally be limited to the sale of medicated wines, and the Excise licence held by the trader concerned in the present case was issued on payment of the full rate of licence duty and authorised the sale of any wines, whether medicated or not. The question is, therefore, not one for the Revenue.
