asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer how the receipts from Beer Duty in the present financial year to the last date available compare with those for the similar period last year; whether the diminution is greater than he anticipated when he introduced his Budget statement; and what cause does he attribute for it?

The receipts from Beer Duty in the period from 1st April to 17th June last (the latest date for which figures are available) were £22,836,000 in the United Kingdom, and in the period from 1st April to 18th June, 1921, were £28,803,000. The reply to the second part of the question is in the negative. The last part of the question does not, therefore, arise.
