HC Deb 29 January 1941 vol 368 cc541-2
20. Mr. Creech Jones

asked the Under-Secretary of State for the Colonies whether he will make a statement indicating the amount of direct taxation imposed in each of the Colonial dependencies, and any changes which have taken place since the commencement of the war; and what relation direct taxation bears to indirect taxation and other sources of revenue in each of these territories?

Mr. George Hall

A statement is being prepared and will be circulated as soon as possible, but my hon. Friend will appreciate that it will be somewhat long and will take some time to compile.
