HC Deb 23 March 1910 vol 15 cc1062-3
Captain FABER

I beg to ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer a question of which I have given him private notice, namely, if he will state whether he can legally give a guarantee to the effect that railway companies can, if they transfer the Income Tax now overdue, recover the money in the event of the Finance Bill not being passed?

The CHANCELLOR of the EXCHEQUER (Mr. Lloyd-George)

I only received the hon. and gallant Member's notice this morning, and I have really had no time to give to the matter. I should like to consider it a little longer, and, if he would put down a question on, the Paper, I should be very glad.
