§ MR. BAKER
asked Mr. Chancellor of the Exchequer, Whether it is the custom of the Department that Taxes should be collected at public houses if such is the custom, whether he will consider the disadvantages of compelling a number of persons, many of whom have only small payments to make, to attend at such places; and, whether an attendance of two hours during one day in a week affords sufficient convenience for those having to make such payments?
§ THE SECRETARY TO THE TREASURY (Mr. HENRY H. FOWLER)
(who replied) said, that the Treasury had no control over the manner in which the Board of Inland Revenue collected taxes. The Board only used public-houses as places of collection when no other place was available.
