HC Deb 24 February 1916 vol 80 c818
61. Sir J. BETHELL

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether, in view of the suggested increase of taxation, he can see his way to amend Section 38 of the Finance (No. 2) Act, 1915, by substantially increasing the Excess Profits Duty?


I understand that my hon. Friend's question relates to the period for which Excess Profits Duty is already in force. I am afraid I am unable to adopt his suggestion.
