HC Deb 03 April 1865 vol 178 c670

said, he would beg to ask Mr. Chancellor of the Exchequer, Whether he has recently received any communications relative to certain discrepancies in the papers which persons assessed to the Income Tax are called upon to fill up; and, if so, whether he will lay the same upon the table of the House?


said, in reply, that he had received a communication on the subject from one gentleman, and that was the only communication he had received. He had also received the answer of the Board of Inland Revenue to the statement made by that gentleman, and if his hon. and learned Friend wished to see the papers he could do so, and he would then he able to form his own judgment whether or not it was necessary to bring the matter before Parliament. For his own part, he thought such a course unnecessary.
