HC Deb 27 April 1926 vol 194 c1840
52. Colonel DAY

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether any Measures are in contemplation with a view to safeguarding the Exchequer against wealthy persons claiming domicile in Jersey in order to evade British taxation and Death Duties?

55. Mr. W. THORNE

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he has considered the possibility of avoiding payment of Income Tax and Death Duties opened up by the acquisition of domicile in Jersey; and whether he will take steps to prevent such evasion, especially in the case of British subjects whose property has been acquired by business in this country?


In reply to these two questions, which I will answer together, I would refer both hon. Members to the reply which I gave yesterday on this subject.
