§ 64. Mr. JOWETT
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether his attention had been called to a resolution passed at a recent conference of the Labour party, of which body his right hon. Friend and colleague, the Member for the Barnard Castle Division, is secretary, to the effect that taxation on unearned incomes should be substantially increased and graded so that on the higher incomes it should not be less than 15s. in the £; and if he will carefully consider the suggestion referred to before he decides on the taxation he will propose in his next Budget?
§ 65. Mr. OUTHWAITE
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether his attention had been called to the resolution carried at the recent conference of the Labour party at Manchester, demanding the imposition of a direct tax on land values in the next Budget on a valuation to be provided by landowners; and will he take steps to carry this proposal into effect?
§ Mr. BONAR LAW
I have seen the proposals to which reference is made, but, whilst I am at all times ready to consider suggestions for raising revenue required for the War, I am of course unable to anticipate my Budget statement.
§ Mr. W. THORNE
Might I ask the right lion. Gentleman whether he has seen the other resolutions passed at the conference?
