§ MR. MUNTZ
asked Mr. Chancellor of the Exchequer, If there be any objection to relieve persons (appointed by the Commissioners of Taxes) of the duty of collecting the Income and Property Tax, by allowing such Tax to be collected by the parties who collect the Poor's Rate or by appointing special collectors?
§ THE CHANCELLOR OF THE EXCHEQUER,
in reply, said, there was no objection on the part of the Government to put the collection of these taxes into the hands of officers appointed by the Government. The only difficulty in the way was the reluctance of some of the present collectors themselves to give up what they considered a profitable business.
