  • A scheme or proposal for taking off the several taxes on land, soap, starch, [electronic resource] : Candles, Leather, Plate, Pots, &c. and replacing the said duties by another tax, which will bring in more Money, in a more Easy and Equal Manner, and less burthensome to the Subject: Humbly offered to the Consideration of the Parliament, as also the People of England, for whose Ease and Benefit this is design'd. Plainly proving, That the Duties on Soap, Candles, and Leather, which do not bring in 600,000 l. a Year, cost the Subject more than double that Sum: So that this Method is calculated to ease the People of one Half of the Sum they now pay, on Account of those several Taxes, and at the same Time Encrease the Revenue. To which is added, Some Considerations on the several Duties upon Tea, Coffee, Chocolat, and Salt, which may be also taken off, and replaced by the same Method, with any Thing else, that is either burthensome to Trade, or a Hardship upon particular Persons, of which the Pot-Act is a glaring Instance; and upon any Emergency a larger Sum may be raised.
