HC Deb 07 April 1925 vol 182 cc2021-2

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether his attention has been drawn to the recent formation of limited or unlimited corn-panics to take over the private estates of certain persons; and whether he will take all necessary steps, by retrospective legislation if necessary, to ensure that such persons shall not thereby be enabled to evade their liabilities for taxation and death duties?


The matter to which my hon. Friend refers has for some time past engaged the attention of the Board of Inland Revenue. He will not, however, expect me at the present stage to make any definite pronouncement.
