§ SIR JOSEPH M'KENNA (Monaghan, S.)
asked the Secretary to the Treasury, with reference to the incomes set forth in the Statistical Abstract for England, Scotland, and Ireland respectively, under Schedule (B.), Whether (apart from all deductions and allowances) there are in fact incomes under that Schedule in Ireland which exceed in gross amount a fifth of the gross amount of incomes under the like Schedule for England; and, whether, as a matter of fact, the gross amount of incomes under Schedule (B) in Ireland exceed by more than 30 per cent. the gross amount of incomes under the like Schedule in Scotland?
§ THE SECRETARY TO THE TREASURY (Mr. HENRY H. FOWLER) (Wolverhampton, E.)
I have to answer both the Questions put by my hon. Friend in the affirmative.
