Clause 11 — Rates of alcoholic liquor duty
Surface Water and Highway Drainage Charges (Exemption) Bill
Jeremy Browne (Taunton, Liberal Democrat)
That is an interesting point. I hope that the review would consider it and make recommendations. I am sure that the Exchequer Secretary to the Treasury could, if she was so minded, say that the reason why the Government wish to oppose the amendment was that they had had a complete change of mind and were upset that the amendment would restrict their ability to cut duty in future years. That would give me a good reason to withdraw it.
