HC Deb 20 October 1942 vol 383 cc1835-6
58. Mr. Channon

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether, in assessing Income Tax, he will, in his next Budget, consider making some allowance or rebate to those taxpayers whose houses have been demolished by enemy action and who are compelled to seek alternative accommodation elsewhere, while they are still obliged to keep up payments of instalments on their properties which have been destroyed?

Sir K. Wood

I am afraid I could not see my way to propose a special relief from taxation in the particular type of case to which my hon. Friend refers.

Mr. Channon

Will the right hon. Gentleman bear in mind the heavy drain on these people?

Sir K. Wood

I have other considerations to take into account.
