§ MR. WILLIAM O'BRIEN (Cork)
To ask Mr.. Chancellor of the Exchequer if he can form any estimate of the probable amount of extra taxation that will be imposed upon Ireland in respect of old-age pensions.
(Answered by Mr. Hobhouse.) It is not possible to answer this Question until the amount of the extra taxation (if any) required has been determined, the precise taxes to be imposed have been decided on, and their incidence as between Great Britain and Ireland has been ascertained.
