HC Deb 14 June 1966 vol 729 c255W
47. Mr. G. Campbell

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what action he intends to take, in view of the fall of 10 per cent. in volume of home sales of Scotch whisky in 1965–66 compared with the previous year, to compensate for the negligible amount of extra duty paid.

Mr. MacDermot

The comparison is misleading because of heavy pre-Budget forestalling in March, 1965, but my right hon. Friend is keeping the position under review.
