HC Deb 08 December 1931 vol 260 c1697
70. Major NATHAN

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether negotiations other than with Sweden and Switzerland have been concluded or are on foot for reciprocal arrangements relating to taxation as envisaged by Section 17 of the Finance Act, 1930?


Arrangements under Section 17 of the Finance Act, 1930, have not yet been made with any countries other than Sweden and Switzerland, but negotiations are on foot in a number of cases.


Will the right hon. Gentleman say, if it be not contrary to the public interest, with what countries further negotiations are on foot?


I do not think it would be advisable to answer that question just at present.
