HC Deb 10 December 1919 vol 122 cc1317-8

asked the Secretary of State for War if he is aware that the members of the Welsh National Federation of Discharged and Demobilised Sailors and Soldiers are protesting against the assessment of Income Tax, and that they demand that all those who have served in His Majesty's Forces during the War shall be exempted from paying Income Tax for a period equivalent to the duration of the War; and will he consider this?

Mr. BALDWIN (Joint Financial Secretary to the Treasury)

I am aware of the representations to which my hon. Friend refers, but I do not see my way to support the proposal put forward.
