HC Deb 31 January 1939 vol 343 c34
50. Sir J. Mellor

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he has any further statement to make with regard to the extent to which expenditure upon protection against air-raids is to be admissible as a deduction in computing trading profits for Income Tax purposes?

Sir J. Simon

I have nothing to add to the answers given to my hon. Friend the Member for Duddeston (Mr. Simmonds) on 28th March last, and to the hon. Member for North Tottenham (Mr. R. C. Morrison) on 7th April, of which I am sending copies to my hon. Friend.

Sir J. Mellor

If the Government make protection of employés a statutory obligation upon employers, does not a new situation arise?
