HC Deb 01 February 1940 vol 356 c1275W
Sir R. Gower

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether, in view of current high prices, he will investigate the possibility of selling duty-free tobacco to serving soldiers in this country, under some rationing system which would make the benefit of the concession solely confined to these users?

Sir J. Simon

I would refer my hon. Friend to the answer which I gave to my hon. Friend the Member for Newcastle-upon-Tyne, Central (Mr. Denville) on 23rd January.
