HC Deb 20 February 1896 vol 37 c717

asked the Secretary to the Treasury whether, in sending out the circular which is always sent out in connection with the introduction of the Land Tax Commissioners' Names Bill, which will be introduced to-day, he will so modify the circular of 1893 as to point out that the Land Tax Commissioners, nominated by the County Members of the House, themselves elect the Income Tax Commissioners, which makes the matter one of importance to the commercial classes.


said, the right hon. Gentleman was undoubtedly correct in saying that the Land Tax Commissioners had the right to appoint the Income Tax Commissioners. In view of the fact that the Income Tax Commissioners had a difficult class of questions to deal with, he thought it would be advisable that the circular should be altered, and he had no doubt it could be altered.
