HC Deb 21 April 1920 vol 128 c495

The following Motion stood on the Order Paper in the name of Sir Park Goff: That, in the opinion of this House, when commodities have increased from 100 to 300 per cent. in price, and in view of the greatly diminished purchasing power of money and the unprecedented need for increased production, the time is opportune for revising the present system of Income Tax as regards workmen and piece workmen to encourage them to put forth their best efforts and not penalise their energy.


I do not propose to move the Motion standing in my name, as I am informed that I can raise the points I have in mind more effectively by way of Amendment to the Finance Bill which will shortly be before the House.
