HC Deb 27 January 1944 vol 396 c861
61. Mr. Tinker

asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury what is the position in relation to payment of Income Tax by an airman in the Royal Air Force serving in India and receiving his pay from the India Command; and is it deducted or paid in India or in this country.

The Financial Secretary to the Treasury (Mr. Ralph Assheton)

An airman serving in the Royal Air Force in India whose pay is disbursed by the Indian Government is subject to Indian Income Tax, deductions being made by the Government of India under the India Tax Code.

Mr. Tinker

Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that I have had brought to my notice a case in which deduction has been made in this country? An application has been made by the wife to get her husband's money back but she cannot get it. If I send particulars to the right hon. Gentleman will he look into the matter?

Mr. Assheton

I shall be very glad to look into it.
