Ltd., brewers, at Bradford, said he -was pleased that the Chancellor of the Exchequer, in dealing with tho additional tax in the. House of Commons, did what had never been done before in his recollection hv a Chancellor of the Exchequer—viz., recognise that the '' trade." as a trade, had contributed as much as it possibly could do on* of its own profits. The Chancellor said that now the time had come, if taxation were to be equitable, for tho consumer to pay. .Probably is a result there would bo a very much decreated output,' which would ' affect tho shareholders: but they believed Mr Lloyd George had imposed tha additional tax "in the best interests of the country. Both they and every patriotic Briton, whatever the cast, had got to see. tho war through. " It may make us poor for a few years," he added, " but, thank Ood, wo will get over it, and we will live in grand old Britafn all the days of our life." (Applause. ) Dr Shadklcton, in moving a vote of thanks to tho chairman, said: "If every chaumau of brewery companies spoke as reasonably as Mr Ratcliffe he was quite sure tho P oo P^ e at headquarters would hava Texy tittle to grumble at."
