HC Deb 08 July 1976 vol 914 c663W
Mr. Carlisle

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer how many representations he has received from the wine and spirit trade about the time for payment of excise duties on wines and spirits; and what replies he has sent.

Mr. Robert Sheldon

Many such representations have been made both before and after this year's Budget. I have explained why it was not possible to allow a period of duty deferment this year but have promised to continue to bear the question carefully in mind.
