HC Deb 10 May 1934 vol 289 cc1246-7
38. Mr. WILMOT

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer the total amount of Income Tax for the year 1933–34 payable by civil servants by deduction from their official pay, under Rule 11 of the rules applicable to Schedule E; and whether the whole of such Income Tax had been deducted from official pay by 31st March, 1934, and included in the total revenue for 1933–34 referred to in his Budget statement?


The Exchequer Receipt in the year to 31st March last from Income Tax Schedule E due on the emoluments of civil servants amounted to about £4,100,000. I cannot give the amount of tax charged for the year, but it may be assumed to be roughly the same as the amount received by the Exchequer.


While thanking the right hon. Gentleman for his reply, may I ask him whether the whole of this amount is taken into account for the year which is closed, having regard to the fact that the tax is payable in advance under the rule?


The hon. Member may have that assurance.
