HC Deb 14 November 1939 vol 353 cc537-8
55. Mr. Storey

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether, when paying £600,000 Income Tax two months before it was due, the Halifax Building Society deducted the 2½ per cent. discount to which they were entitled for such prepayment?

Sir J. Simon

I am unable to furnish my hon. Friend with the information for which he asks, as it is contrary to practice to disclose particulars relating to the taxation affairs of a particular taxpayer.

Mr. Loģan

To what deduction would one be entitled?
