§ Sir John Rodgers
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will provide for a free charge for wine and spirit clearance from bond which would entail no loss to the Treasury but which would minimise the transition problems of the wine and spirits industry.
§ Mr. Robert Sheldon
No, but I am continuing to look at the impact of fiscal legislation on the wine and spirits industry. However, any concession to the industry must initially entail some loss of revenue to the Exchequer.
