HC Deb 03 April 1913 vol 51 c565
95. Mr. FELL

asked if the collectors of Income Tax during the last few days of the expiring financial year neglected to collect Income Tax which was due and which was offered to be paid to them, but which they suggested should not be paid until the first week in April; and, if so, was this done under instructions from or at the suggestion of the Treasury?


There is absolutely no foundation for the suggestion contained in the first part of the question, and the second part does not therefore arise.


I did not put this question down without good evidence; and may I ask if the collectors were allowed by the Treasury to collect the Income Tax in such a way as to affect the revenue of the past year and of this year?


If the hon. Member will give me any cases I will certainly look into them.
