HC Deb 22 April 1915 vol 71 c395
40. Mr. MORTON

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he is aware that the Inland Revenue officials are declining to allow wills of naturalised Germans to be proved where they hold German securities, unless such securities are valued at 80 per cent. of their face value, notwithstanding the fact that such securities are not saleable here; and, if so, will he say what steps he proposes to take?


I am not aware that any practice exists of the nature indicated by my hon. Friend. Each case is dealt with on its own merits and the securities referred to are not required to be valued up to any fixed percentage of their face value.
