MR. J. BRYN ROBERTS (Carnarvonshire, Eifion)
asked Mr. Chancellor of the Exchequer, Whether, having regard to the fact that the farmers and small traders in Wales do not understand English, he will cause Welsh notices for Returns of Income Tax to be circulated in the purely Welsh-speaking districts of Wales?
§ THE CHANCELLOR OF THE EXCHEQUER (Mr GOSCHEN) (St George's, Hanover Square)
It has not been found necessary, since the imposition of the Income Tax in 1842, to print the notices referred to in Welsh; nor has any difficulty been experienced in making assessments and collecting the duties by 711 means of notices in English. It may be added that all the poor rates on which the Income Tax assessments are based are made out and collected in English.
