§ 54. Mr. LOUIS SMITH
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether, in view of the anomaly of tax deduction as a result of Rule 8 of Schedule A, Income Tax Act of 1918, to which his attention has been called by the hon. Member for the Hallam Division of Sheffield (Mr. L. Smith), he will state the nature of the objections which are entertained to dealing with this in the Finance Bill of 1931; and whether, in view of the increasing number of such cases through modern building conditions, he will reconsider his decision?
§ Mr. P. SNOWDEN
While I cannot at present accede to the hon. Member's request, I can assure him that the matter will not be lost sight of.
§ Mr. SNOWDEN
I am not sure, but I have an impression that I have already suggested to the hon. Member that, if he has specific cases, he might get into touch with the Commissioners of Inland Revenue.
