§ 46. Sir A. HOLBROOK
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what proportion of the £64,000,000, stated to be the amount of the arrears of Income Tax up to the end of May, has been now recovered; whether the whole of this sum was taken into calculation in his estimate on which taxation for the current year is based: and what steps, if any, are being taken to recover the arrears referred to?
§ Sir J. BAIRD
I could not ascertain without great expenditure of time and labour the proportion asked for in the first part of my hon. and gallant Friend's question. In the preparation of the Budget estimate for 1922–23 due regard was paid to the amount of Income Tax outstanding at the 31st March, 1922, the collection of which is being carried out in the normal way.
