MR. R. PEARCE (Staffordshire, Leek)

To ask Mr. Chancellor of the Exchequer what total amounts during the financial years ending March, 1906, and March, 1907, were returned to public charities or allowed to them by way of exemption from property or income-tax.

(Answered by Mr. Asquith) Figures for the year 1906–7 cannot yet be given. But for the two preceding years the amounts of income exempted from tax as devoted to "charitable" (in the legal sense) purposes, were as follows:—

Year to 31st March, 1905 10,005,000
Year to 31st March, 1906 10,532,000
