§ 62. Sir William Darling
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer the taxation per head of the population in 1913–14 and in 1944–45.
§ Sir W. Darling
If it would not be anticipating the Chancellor's Budget statement, may I ask if he can give us an indication whether this vast sum of £64 is likely shortly to be reduced?
§ Sir Wavell Wakefield
May I ask if the figures which the Chancellor has given include indirect taxation as well as direct taxation?
§ Mr. H. Hynd
Could the Chancellor say whether he regards this calculation as an argument for a rise in hon. Members' salaries?
§ Sir Henry Morris-Jones
Can the Chancellor say what the position will be like in two years' time, if we go on at the present rate?
