§ 20. Mr. BOWERMAN
asked if, with one exception, the companies comprising the Beef Trust of Chicago have paid no income Tax for a period of about ten years although their aggregate overturn in this country is nearly £20,000,000 per annum; if the matter has been before the solicitors' department at Somerset House for about eighteen months; and whether any proceedings have been taken against the companies in question, and, if so, with what result?
§ Mr. MONTAGU
The facts of the case are not quite as stated, but the matter has received, and is continuing to receive, the careful attention of the authorities.
