§ 49. Sir ALFRED BEIT
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he is prepared to carry out the recommendations in Section XII of the Royal Commission on the Income Tax, 1920, regarding the taxation of co-operative societies?
§ 57. Rear-Admiral SUETER
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether, in view of the fact that the co-operative movement now numbers 423 affiliated societies and has 3,000,000 members, he will consider setting up a small committee to devise means for bringing the profits of these societies under Schedule D of the Income Tax, as recommended by the Royal Commission of 1920?
I am afraid that I cannot add anything to the answer that I gave on this subject to the hon. and gallant Member for Hertford (Rear-Admiral Sueter) on the 24th November last.
§ Sir A. BEIT
If I put down this question after the next Budget will the right hon. Gentleman be able to say that I am asking him to anticipate the following year's Budget?
