asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury the amount of revenue received for the last three years in respect of the duty on white spirit and vegetable turpentine?

The duty on hydrocarbon oils, which applies to white spirit and turpentine, only came into force as from 25th April, 1928. The approximate amount of revenue derived from turpentine from that date to 28th February, 1930, was £125,000. Statistics in regard to the receipts from white spirit are not available.
