HC Deb 17 June 1952 vol 502 c78W
13. Mr. McKay

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he is aware that many aged pensioners do not smoke; and if he will consider giving to those who do not want a tobacco voucher a privilege coupon for cheaper milk.

Mr. R. A. Butler

No. The purpose of the tobacco duty relief scheme is to give to old age pensioners who smoke some relief from the post-war increases in the duty on tobacco. I regret that I cannot accept the suggestion made in the latter part of the Question.
