HC Deb 07 November 1916 vol 87 c38
66. Mr. O'GRADY

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he is aware that miners (workmen) travelling to their work from Leeds to Micklefield, a distance of nine miles each way, at a cost of 2s. a week, or a total of £5 4s. a year, are charged Income Tax upon that sum; and, if so, will instructions be given to surveyors of taxes in the district that moneys thus expended are not to be subjected to Income Tax?


Inquiry is being made into this matter, and I will communicate the result to my hon. Friend as soon as I am in a position to do so.
