57. Mr. HUTCHISON
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether in view of the number of manual and other workers who will be subject to Income Tax in consequence of the provisions of the Finance (No. 2) Act, 1931, he will consider the immediate introduction of machinery to provide for the payment of such tax due at the source by the employers of the workers concerned?
The deduction by employers of Income Tax from wages has been considered on various occasions in the past, but it has never been found practicable. I am, however, looking into the question again.
§ 65. Rear-Admiral SUETER
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will take the necessary steps to see that in future all wholesale and retail co-operative societies are made to pay Income Tax under Schedule D and are treated like all other trading concerns for taxation purposes?
This raises a question of Budgetary policy, and I am afraid that I cannot anticipate the Budget statement.
