HC Deb 01 October 1931 vol 257 cc643-7

Motion made, and Question proposed, "That the Clause stand part of the Bill."


This Clause raises a point that is different from but cognate to the point that was raised on Clause 22, and though it is different, I think it can be attacked and defended on the same lines as those which were used on the respective sides of the Committee on the former Clause. Therefore, I do not propose to say very much with regard to it, but we shall vote against it. I gathered from something that the Chancellor of the Exchequer said earlier that he was somewhat doubtful about this Clause and that he had only come down in favour of it after a good deal of hesitation. Our hesitation is apparently a little stronger than his, and we have come down in our minds against this Clause. The existing provision in regard to the 5 per cent. War Loan has proved a very inconvenient one. It postpones the payment of tax, and at the same time, in a certain number of cases—the Chancellor said there were only a few—it enables evasion to take place. For both these reasons, we are opposed to the Clause.

Lieut.-Colonel Sir A. LAMBERT WARD

Hon. and right hon. Members opposite will observe that this Clause is merely permissive. It does not say that the Treasury shall issue a conversion loan on those terms; it merely says that the Treasury may, if they think fit. There is not the least doubt that if we wish to bring a conversion of 5 per cent. War Loan to a successful issue, we must endeavour to encourage foreign money to come into it, and there is not the least doubt that foreign money on a long-term loan is a great advantage.


May I point out that that is quite beside the mark, as we have already, in Clause 22, said that no foreigner shall pay tax at all on either of these loans? We are discussing Clause 23, which, in consequence of what we decided on Clause 22, does not apply to foreigners at all.


As the hon. Gentleman says, this is cognate to Clause 22, but it is germane to the whole question. If Income Tax is to be deducted at the source, it will discourage the foreigner from investing his money. The ex-Financial Secretary to the Treasury is not a foreigner, and cannot know the foreigner's ideas on the subject. I know from my conversation with people who are foreigners, who have interests in this country, that the mere fact that Income Tax is to be deducted at the source will act as a serious deterrent and will prevent them investing their money. It is true that they will not be liable to Income Tax, but it means that it will be deducted from their dividends before they get them, and they will have to go through the cumbersome and laborious task of recovering it. That in itself will act as a deterrent and prevent foreigners investing their money in this proposed loan, and it will make it infinitely more difficult for an effectual conversion to be carried out.

Question put, "That the Clause stand port of the Bill."

The Committee divided: Ayes, 235; Noes, 126.
