§ 33. Captain DOWER
asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury if he can now state to what use it is intended to put the information obtained by the registration of transfers of sale of land, the granting of leases and transfer of the sale of leases, under Section 28 of the Finance Act, 1931 (Land Value Tax)?
§ The FINANCIAL SECRETARY to the TREASURY (Mr. Hore-Belisha)
I would refer my hon. and gallant Friend to the reply given on the 16th of May last to the hon. Member for North Lanarkshire (Mr. Anstruther-Gray), of which I am sending him a copy.
§ Captain DOWER
As this Department was formed for one purpose, namely, land taxes, and now apparently fulfills another, surely my hon. Friend knows that we got on quite well before it discovered its new indispensability?
