§ 48. Lieut.-Colonel HENEAGE
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he is aware that notice No. 37 Sec. 41,831/1929 was sent out by the Commissioners of Customs and Excise registered to doctors; how many were sent out, and at what cost for registration alone; and what is the object of registering this leaflet?
§ The CHANCELLOR of the EXCHEQUER (Mr. Philip Snowden)
The Commissioners were advised that it was desirable to ensure that the contents of the notice, to which the hon. and gallant Member refers, were effectively brought to the knowledge of the persons concerned, and they were therefore either delivered personally, where this was practicable, or were sent by registered post. Particulars of the numbers delivered by post and, in 1961 consequence, the cost of registration, cannot be ascertained without undue labour.
