HC Deb 18 July 1927 vol 209 cc94-5

"Section twenty-eight (Amendment as to allowance for repairs) of the Finance Act, 1923, shall continue to have effect until the fifth day of April, nineteen hundred and thirty-three, on which day, unless Parliament otherwise determines, it shall cease to have effect."—[Brigadier-General Brown.]

Brought up, and read the First time.

Brigadier-General BROWN

I beg to move, "That the Clause be read a Second time."


I beg to second the Motion.


I can very shortly answer the question put by my hon. Friend. It deals with the taxation of the year 1928–29, and although it is quite true that that to which my hon. Friend refers comes to an end in April, the actual tax is not payable until the following 1st January. So there will be ample time in the Finance Bill of next year to decide what is to be done before the tax becomes payable.


That assurance satisfies me, and I suggest that the Clause be withdrawn.

Brigadier-General BROWN

I ask leave to withdraw the Clause.

Motion and Clause, by leave, withdrawn.
