SIR MANCHERJEE BHOWNAG-GREE (Bethnal Green, N.E.)
I beg to ask Mr. Chancellor of the Exchequer if he would consider the advisability of allowing the payment of income tax being made in quarterly or half-yearly instalments for the greater convenience of tradesmen and professional men in the poorer districts.
§ THE CHANCELLOR OF THE EXCHEQUER (Sir M. HICKS BEACH, Bristol, W.)
I am considering this matter, but I doubt if it will be possible to make the change. The tax is not due in such cases till the fourth quarter of the year.
