§ MR. O'DOHERTY (Donegal, N.)
To ask Mr. Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he is aware that civilian surgeons attached to His Majesty's forces in South Africa have to pay on their salary and allowances income-tax to the Imperial Exchequer, and at the same time contribute to the revenue of the Colony; and whether, seeing that civilian surgeons in South Africa are the only civilians attached to the Army who pay income-tax on their salaries, he will place these surgeons on an equal footing with other civilians attached to the Army.
(Answered by Mr. Austen Chamberlain.) I will make inquiry into the facts. The information at present in my possession does not enable me to answer the Question.
