HC Deb 01 May 1928 vol 216 cc1513-4
47. Sir W. de FRECE

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer the cost to the country of the proceedings taken by the Inland Revenue Commissioners versus Wilson; and what action is being taken, in view of the opinion of the Judges that the appeal by the Crown should never have been brought?

The FINANCIAL SECRETARY to the TREASURY (Mr. Arthur Michael Samuel)

I would refer my hon. Friend to the reply which was given yesterday to the hon. Member for Plaistow (Mr. W. Thorne). I am sending him a copy of that reply.

Sir W. de FRECE

Would £3,000 be an accurate figure of the cost of the appeal?


No, Sir. From the information which I have received I should think it is under £1,000.
