HC Deb 15 April 1926 vol 194 c475
33. Mr. J. HUDSON

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what were the arrears of Income Tax and of Super-tax outstanding on the 31st March, 1925, and on the 31st March, 1926?


The latest revised Estimates of the amounts of Income Tax and Super-tax due to be paid (namely, amounts in respect of which a demand for payment had been issued) but not paid at the 31st March, 1925, are as follow:

Income Tax 33,645,000
Super-tax 25,000,000
Sufficient time has not yet elapsed since the close of the financial year to enable me to furnish similar Estimates of the arrears of Income Tax and Super-tax outstanding at the 31st March, 1926.


Can the right hon. Gentleman give us any indication whether the amounts outstanding are being reduced?


I think that we are overtaking them.
