HC Deb 30 September 1909 vol 11 cc1546-7

Section one hundred and forty-one of the Income Tax Act, 1842, and Section ten of the Revenue Act, 1889 (which relate to discount on the prepayment of Income Tax), shall cease to have effect.


I wish to withdraw Clause 11.


Why is this Clause withdrawn?


The reason was that this Bill should, as far as possible, be a Revenue Bill and a non-contentious Bill. I found hon. Gentlemen opposite had some objection to these three Clauses (Nos. 11, 12, and 13), and in order to meet their wishes and make the Bill non-contentious, I gave notice a few days ago to withdraw these Clauses, and thus keep my promise.

Question, "That the Clause stand part of the Bill," put, and negatived.
