60. Colonel NEWMAN
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he is satisfied that the co-operative movement in Great Britain is contributing its fair proportion of the burden of taxation now borne by businesses that trade for profit; and, if not, is it his intention to deal with the matter in the forthcoming Finance Bill?
I would refer my hon. and gallant Friend to the reply given yesterday to the hon. and gallant Member for Buckingham.
If the whole trade of the country were in the hands of the co-operative movement, would the Chancellor of the Exchequer be able to balance his Budget?
