HC Deb 24 March 1927 vol 204 c554
50. Colonel WOODCOCK

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what steps he has taken during the past year in connection with the proposal for taxpayers to make only one return for Income Tax and Super-tax, so that, in the majority of cases, the Super-tax assessment could be made locally by the inspector of taxes and forwarded to the Special Commissioners for approval, thereby effecting considerable economy to the Exchequer, as well as saving labour, expense, and worry to the taxpayer?


As I have previously stated, I have always shared my hon. and gallant Friend's desire to reduce the complications of the present system, but. I am not in a position to make any statement on the matter at the present time.
