HC Deb 05 August 1907 vol 179 c1521
MR. CORRIE GRANT (Warwickshire, Rugby)

To ask the Secretary to the Treasury whether, with regard to the right of income tax payers to claim the lower rate of 9d. in the £, it is proposed that any person who has already made a return, and does not receive the supplementary form, will have to pay 1s. in the £ unless he applies for a supplementary form within the next month (that is, August) to the local surveyor.

(Answered by Mr. Asquith.) No, Sir. Persons who are entitled to relief in respect of earned income and who have not already made a return of their total income for the purpose of claiming the existing statutory abatements will be required, as provided in Clause 19 (4) of the Finance Bill, to present their claims before 30th September. Supplementary forms for this purpose will be issued by the surveyors of taxes to persons who appear to be entitled to relief immediately after the passing of the Finance Bill, but, as I stated in reply to a Question by the hon. Member for Aston Manor on 18th July, it will be advisable for anyone so entitled, who has not received a supplementary form by the end of the present month, to apply to the surveyor for his district, who will see that the omission is repaired.
