HC Deb 25 July 1907 vol 179 c133
MR. EVELYN CECIL (Aston Manor)

I beg to ask Mr. Chancellor of the Exchequer whether persons whose incomes do not exceed,£700 a year, and who have already made a claim for abatement for the year 1907–8 on the forms as originally issued, will be required to make a supplementary claim in respect of earned income if all the material facts have been stated in the claim already made.

The FINANCIAL SECRETARY to the TREASURY (Mr. RUNCIMAN, Dewsbury; for Mr. Asquith)

In the circumstances described the Board of Inland Revenue will be prepared, subject to any inquiries that may appear necessary, to treat claims already entered for the existing statutory abatements as sufficient notice of a claim to relief in respect of any portion of the income included in the claim that may manifestly be earned, and will not insist on the presentation of a supplementary claim.
