MR. STEWART-SMITH (Westmoreland, Kendal)
To ask the Secretary to the Treasury whether the Commissioners of Inland Revenue have fixed a sum of 10s. per barrel, and, if not that sum, then what sum as the profit per barrel of beer in cases of reference to the Commissioners under The Licensing Act, 1904, Section 2.
(Answered by Mr. Hobhouse.) No fixed rate of profit per barrel has been adopted by the Commissioners in determining awards of compensation, as profit varies according to circumstances.
