HC Deb 26 April 1932 vol 265 cc342-3

Resolution reported, That, for the purpose of any Act of the present Session, relating to Finance, it is expedient to authorise the payment out of moneys provided by Parliament of any expenditure incurred on account of annual allowances by way of compensation granted to collectors of taxes (including collectors, of land tax) in England and Northern Ireland in cases where—

  1. (a) the collector's appointment as such is determined after the commencement of the said Act; and
  2. (b) the collector held his appointment as such on the thirty-first day of July, nineteen hundred and thirty-one, and has continued to hold the appointment up to the commencement of the said Act."

Motion made, and Question proposed, "That this House doth agree with the Committee in the said Resolution."


I had put on the Paper an Amendment which I do not now wish to move, because I have an assurance that the power to pay lump sums as well as annual payments is contained in certain Acts now on the Statute Book, and that that will apply to these provisions when they are put into the form of a Statute.

Question put, and agreed to.
