HC Deb 21 July 1950 vol 477 c206W
Mr. Dodds-Parker

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will give the net amount of duty collected at full and preferential rates on cigar and cigar leaf withdrawn from bond and retained for consumption in the United Kingdom for each of the five financial years ended 31st March, 1946, to 1950.

Sir S. Cripps:

Cigar leaf is not distinguished for duty purposes from leaf used for making other tobacco products, and this part of the information requested is, therefore, not available. As regards imported cigars, particulars of duty receipts are set out in the following table:
