HC Deb 01 June 1938 vol 336 c2065W
Mr. Kelly

asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury whether he can state the number of excise staff employed during the year in the supervision of distilleries in Great Britain?

Captain Wallace

The number of Customs and Excise officials employed in the supervision of distilleries varies during the course of each year on account of the seasonal nature and extent of distillery operations. The average number of officials employed during 1937 at distilleries was 147 whole-time and 65 part-time.
