§ 42. Mr. HAYDAY
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Agriculture whether instructions have been issued that ex-Service men training at Ingham Horticultural Institute, near Statham, Norwich, to the effect that all trainees drawing £2 or over must sign a stamped receipt, the trainee finding the stamp for this purpose; and, if so, will he state the reason for this action?
The PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY to the MINISTRY of AGRICULTURE (Sir A. Boscawen)
The answer to the first part of the question is in the affirmative. The hon. Member is, no doubt, aware that stamped receipts are required on all transactions of £2 or over, under the Stamp Act of 1891.
