HC Deb 26 February 1907 vol 169 c1431

I beg to ask Mr. Chancellor of the Exchequer whether instructions have recently been given as regards pensioned civil servants whereby income-tax is deducted from their pensions in respect of the property tax upon any cottages or other property belonging to them; and whether this has the effect of preventing such civil servants obtaining relief in respect of any of such property which during the year may happen to be void.


I have made inquiries, but I have been unable to trace any action on the part of public departments that can have given rise to the impression on which the hon. Member's Question appears to be founded; but if he can give me a specific case, I will have it looked into.
