HC Deb 09 March 1926 vol 192 c2106
60. Lieut.-Colonel ACLAND-TROYTE

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he proposes to exempt educational establishments, such as Brighton College, from paying Income Tax in the future; and, if so, whether he will state the terms under which such exemption will be made?


I would refer my hon. and gallant Friend to the reply given to my hon. Friend the Member for the English Universities on the 11th February. I am sending him a copy of that reply, to which I am unable usefully to add anything.


Is the right hon. Gentleman aware of the great advance that has been made in recent years by Brighton College, and can he not see his way to help forward that advance by doing something for it?


I am very glad to hear there has been an advance, but I do not see my way to alter the general law on the subject on account of it.
