HC Deb 27 March 1919 vol 114 cc591-2
64. Brigadier-General COCKERILL

asked whether it is the intention of the Government to make no alteration or improvements in the present Income Tax laws until the Royal Commission on Income Tax has reported?


I can add nothing to the reply that I gave on the 20th instant, in answer to a supplementary question by the hon. Member for Canterbury. I am sending my hon. and gallant Friend a copy.

Brigadier-General COCKERILL

Can the right hon. Gentleman say when the House may expect to receive the Report of the Royal Commission?


It is not usual to fix a date for the Report of a Royal Commission. That is a subject for the Commission itself. It is the hope of the Chairman of the Commission, a hope which I share, that the Commission will finish their inquiry in the course of the next financial year, and in full time for consideration in respect of the Budget of 1920.
