asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if it is his intention to renew the tablewater duties, seeing that, owing to the heavy taxation, the output of sweetened beverages was reduced in 1920 by 21,500,000 gallons as compared with 1918, and that, without the table-water duties, the mineral and aerated water trade pays in other taxation £719,220, and that the reduction of output, if continued, will add largely to the unemployment difficulty?
