HC Deb 13 November 1969 vol 791 cc145-6W
Mr. James Davidson

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer why less than 5½ per cent. of the net receipts of Customs and Excise duties in the financial year 1967–68 were allocated to Scotland under current receipts in the Treasury Report, "A Scottish Budget".

Mr. Taverne

Receipts in 1967–68 attributed to Scotland in the Treasury Report "A Scottish Budget" of the hydrocarbon oil duty, purchase tax, the duties on tobacco and alcoholic drink and other Customs and Excise duties total £351 million. This corresponds to 9.4 per cent of the total receipts of these duties.
