HC Deb 13 December 1928 vol 223 cc2327-8

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he can give the gross assessment for Income Tax, Schedule A, and the yield of the tax on agricultural land for the years 1913–14, 1921–22 and 1927–28?

The CHANCELLOR of the EXCHEQUER (Mr. Churchill)

The statistics collected in respect of the Income Tax (Schedule A) do not distinguish agricultural land. The only information available is the gross assessment to Income Tax (Schedule A) on all lands, whether used for agricultural purposes or not, and my hon. Friend will find this information for years up to 1925 in the Annual Reports of the Commissioners of Inland Revenue. I regret that under the present system of graduation and differentiation of the Income Tax the total yield of the tax cannot he divided between the respective Schedules.

56. Captain CROOKSHANK

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he proposes to publish a memorandum with regard to the liability to British Income Tax of Dominion and foreign visitors to this country; and, if so, when?


I am unable at the moment to add anything to the replies to my hon. and gallant Friend's questions of 15th November and previous dates.


Would the right hon. Gentleman be likely to be able to give an answer after the Christmas holidays?


I do not know.
