§ MR. WILLIAM REDMOND
I beg to ask Mr. Chancellor of the Exchequer in how many cases income-tax has been deducted from monetary prizes in the form of single non-recurrent payments, offered for competition in the public services, between the years 1895 and 1905 inclusive.
§ MR. ASQUITH
The Board of Inland Revenue have no record of such cases. The deduction, when made, would be made by the Department making the payment. If there is any particular case in which a question arises whether the tax is properly deductible or not, I shall be happy to have it looked into.
