87. Mr. David Adams
asked the Under secretary of State for the Colonies whether a reply has now been given to the petition from citizens of the Seychelles Islands, received some months ago; and whether this, and the Minister's reply, will be made available to the House?
§ The Under-Secretary of State for the Colonies (Mr. George Hall)
I assume that my hon Friend refers to the representations from the Seychelles Taxpayers' Association which formed the subject of his Question on 22nd January last. My Noble Friend has requested the Governor to reply to these representations; and a copy of the terms in which the reply will be made and of the representations from the Association will be communicated to my hon. Friend.
Colonel A. Evans
Can the hon. Gentleman tell the House what is the rate of Income Tax in the Seychelles Islands?
