HC Deb 12 May 1915 vol 71 cc1628-9

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if co-operative societies throughout the country are supplying large quantities of goods to canteens and to non-members of their societies; and if he will require them to be assessed for the purposes of Income Tax, and so relieve the general traders from this unfair competition?

The CHANCELLOR of the EXCHEQUER (Mr. Lloyd George)

I would refer the hon. Member to the replies which I gave to the hon. and learned Member for Warwick and Leamington on the 24th November last.
