§ 101. Mr. LEES-SMITH
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what is the number of Super-tax payers, and their total income?
§ 109. Colonel WEDGWOOD
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what was the estimated number of persons liable to Super-tax during the financial year ended 31st March, 1924; what was the estimated total income of those persons for Super-tax purposes; and their estimated average individual income?
§ Mr. CHURCHILL
The number of persons who will ultimately be charged to 1522 Super-tax for the year 1923–24 is estimated to be 89,000, with a total income of £510,000,000, and an average individual income of £5,730. These estimates are necessarily provisional and are subject to revision.
§ Sir H. CROFT
In view of that fact that Super-tax payers contribute so much more of their total wealth than any other section of the community, could not something be done to increase their number by encouraging the industry of this country?
§ Mr. LEES-SMITH
Could the right hon. Gentleman give, say, a rough estimate of how much they left after they had paid their Super-tax?
