74. Mr. T. THOMSON
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if a soldier who was demobilised before 5th April, 1919, is less favourably treated as regards abatement allowance on Income Tax than one who was demobilised after that date; and, if so, whether he can see his way to extend to the former the abatement of £160 for the first year after demobilisation granted to the latter?
I would refer the hon. Member to the answer given on the 29th instant to the hon. Member for Morpeth in reply to a similar question. I am sending the hon. Member a copy.
