§ Colonel DAY
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he is aware that there are approximately 2,000,000 bachelors in Great Britain; and will he consider introducing legislation that will nave as its object the taxation of all bachelors over the age of 25 years?
§ Mr. SNOWDEN
Will the right hon. Gentleman take into consideration the fact that the Income Tax system already differentiates very much against bachelors?
§ Mr. CHURCHILL
Yes, Sir. It would seem that in the event of it being decided to tax the bachelor further, certainly it would be for consideration whether, in the event of his being found to have an accomplice in this mal-practice, the burden should be shared.
§ Sir PARK GOFF
If this national injustice cannot be cured in any way, in the interests of humanity will my right hon. Friend consider an age limit?
