46. Sir G. DOYLE
asked the Prime Minister whether it is the intention of the Government to introduce a Bill to give effect to the recommendations of the Royal Commission on Income Tax in regard to the taxation of agents on behalf of non-resident principals; and, if so, when?
§ The CHANCELLOR of the EXCHEQUER (Mr. Philip Snowden)
It is not the intention of the Government to introduce at present legislation dealing with the recommendations of the Royal Commission on the Income Tax on the subject to which the hon. Member refers.
§ Mr. SNOWDEN
The hon. Gentleman's question was whether we had any intention at present. We have no intention to do so at present. As the hon. Gentleman knows, this is a highly technical subject—(HON. MEMBERS: "Hear, hear!"] 577 —and, from those cheers, I think it is one which may very easily be highly controversial.
