§ 50. Sir JOHN POWER
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if the extension of Income Tax relief proposed in the 1897 Budget on account of children will be applicable in respect of all children who survive their birth, however short the period?
§ 56. Mr. LOUGHER
asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury whether he is aware that inquiries are being made of banks by His Majesty's inspectors of taxes as to the amount of customers' stock sold, the date of sale, and particulars of how the capital is re-invested; whether such inquisition is being made by his authority or by the authority of his Department; and if he has any statement to make upon the matter?
I am not aware of the matter to which my hon. Friend refers, but if he will give me particulars of any case of the kind which he has in mind, I will cause inquiry to be made and communicate the result to him in due course.
§ Mr. LOUGHER
I shall be pleased to supply to the hon. Gentleman particulars of the case which has been reported to me.
