Clause 16 — Rates and rebates from September 2009
Alan Reid (Argyll and Bute, Liberal Democrat)
The hon. Gentleman has hit on a problem and proposed a solution, but will he enlighten us on one point? His proposed new subsection (1AB) states:
"The Treasury must... reduce the rates of duty",
but it does not specify the times at which the Treasury must do that. Would it happen every month, every day, or every six months?
