§ 46. Viscount SANDON
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether the Government intends to propose any legislative means to remove the imposition on co-partnership shares of Super-tax on dividends, as revealed in the recent case of Parsons v. the Inland Revenue in the Courts?
§ The FINANCIAL SECRETARY to the TREASURY (Mr. Arthur Michael Samuel)
I am not prepared to propose legislation on the point to which my Noble Friend refers.
§ Viscount SANDON
Is not this a case where the right hon. Gentleman could make a real contribution to industrial peace?
§ Mr. SAMUEL
It has been considered, and the Chancellor of the Exchequer is not in a position to fall in with my Noble Friend's suggestion.
