HC Deb 13 February 1934 vol 285 cc1756-7
43. Mr. LUNN

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what would be the approximate cost to the revenue if the law regarding Death Duties were amended to exclude the capital value of pensions received by widows from superannuation funds from which their husbands received pensions?


I am afraid that the statistics of the capital charged to Death Duties are not kept in sufficient detail to provide a basis for calculating the loss of duty which the suggested amendment would entail.
