§ MR. WEIR
To ask the Secretary of State for India whether his attention has been called to the fact that income tax is now levied in India on incomes of 500 rupees (£33 6s. 8d.) and upwards; and will he consider the expediency of extending the exemption.
(Answered by Secretary Lord George Hamilton). I am aware of the fact which the hon. Member mentions. There is no intention at present of modifying the Indian Income Tax Act.
