HC Deb 11 May 1971 vol 817 cc64-5W
Mr. William Hamilton

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what steps he has taken to encourage a reduction in the prices of beer consequent on the proposed reduction in selective employment tax.

Mr. Prior

I have made it known that the Government expects the benefit of the forthcoming reduction in S.E.T. to be passed on in some way to consumers.
