HC Deb 30 June 1927 vol 208 c560
34. Captain A. EVANS

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if His Majesty's Government have entered into negotiations with the United States Treasury Department with a view to the abolition of double Income Tax; what form the negotiations took; and what is the present position?


An agreement has been reached, and is in force, with the United States for relief from double Income Tax on the profits from the business of shipping; but there have been no negotiations with that Government with a view to a general agreement for the avoidance of double taxation. In this connection I would invite my hon. and gallant Friend's attention to the reply which I gave on this subject to the hon. Member for Maryhill on 23rd June: I am sending him a copy of that reply.
