HC Deb 18 April 1904 vol 133 c355

To ask Mr. Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he will lay upon the Table of the House the Departmental Return showing the state of the income-tax collection at the end of the months of January, February, and March for England, Scotland, and Ireland.

(Answered by Mr. Austen Chamberlain.) The Returns in question are of a purely Departmental character; they are prepared on quite a different basis for England and Scotland respectively, and the figures would require a large amount of readjustment before they could be used for the purposes of comparison, and under the circumstances I do not propose to lay them.
