HC Deb 25 March 1981 vol 1 cc356-7W
Mr. Foulkes

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what price increases of beer, spirits and soft drinks have taken place during each of the last three years for which information is available.

Mr. Brittan

I would refer the hon. Member to tables 25 and 34 of the report of Her Majesty's Commissioners of Customs and Excise for the year ended 31 March 1980, a copy of which is in the Library of the House. I regret that similar information about soft drinks is not available.
