§ 53. Mr. J. MASON
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer how much Income Tax and Super-Tax, respectively, due in January last, has not yet been collected; and how much of this has not been assessed or applied for?
§ Mr. BONAR LAW
The exact particulars asked for are not available, and could not be made so without specific inquiry in every tax surveyor's district throughout the United Kingdom. The Board of Inland Revenue, however, inform me that the progress of the assessment and collection during the current year is fully up to the average, and they anticipate that about 90 per cent, of the amount due on 1st January, 1918, will reach the Exchequer before the 31st instant.
