§ 64. Sir H. CROFT
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he can give any estimate of the decline in revenue under Schedule A owing to the reduction of assessments on public houses during the present financial year?
I regret that the statistics collected regarding the Income Tax do not distinguish different kinds of business, and I am unable, therefore, to furnish any information regarding the Income Tax, Schedule A assessments on public house property.
§ 69. Mr. LEONARD
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether the report of the committee of inquiry on co-operative societies and Income Tax has been returned to the committee for further consideration?
§ 70. Mr. DAVID GRENFELL
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will state the reason for the delay in the publication of the report of the committee appointed to inquire into the position of co-operative societies under the Income Tax Acts?
The report has not been and will not be returned to the committee for further consideration. As the Financial Secretary stated in reply to a question on Monday, it has not yet been considered by the Government.
§ Mr. LEONARD
Has the right hon. Gentleman considered the fact that over 6,500,000 families are intimately connected with the matter and are desirous of hearing the result of the committee's inquiries, and will he hasten its report?
