HC Deb 28 May 1965 vol 713 c138W
Mr. Emrys Hughes

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what would be the loss to the revenue if the whole range of duties on beer, wines and spirits, both British and otherwise, and on tobacco, were not levied.

Mr. MacDermot

The estimated yield of the duties on tobacco and on alcoholic drinks in the current financial year is £1,670 million.
