§ 70. Sir R. NEWMAN
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether, in view of the fact that the work of many women, journalists and others, compel them to be from home most of the day and often far into the evening, ho will undertake that in any alteration in the Income Tax the relief provided by Section 27, Sub-section 637 (2), of the Finance Act, 1919, be extended to a working woman who, being entirely responsible for the upkeep of her home, has a female relation residing with her in the capacity of housekeeper?
74. Sir H. BRITTAI N
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether, in view of the small fixed incomes of the clergy, which have remained stationary notwithstanding the great depreciation of the £ sterling, he can see his way to exempt Easter offerings from this year's Income Tax?
The consideration of these questions must be deferred till the publication of the Report of the Royal Commission on the Income Tax.
§ 73. Mr. G. LOCKER-LAMPSON
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether the Chairman of the Royal Commission on Income Tax has yet presented his Report?
