HC Deb 10 July 1947 vol 439 cc2429-30
53. Mr. Turton

asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury whether he is aware that the new Pay As You Earn tax tables are being posted in envelopes 16 inches by 11 inches in size; and whether, in order to conserve paper, he will instruct his Department to fold the tables and to use envelopes half the size.

Mr. Glenvil Hall

Wrappers are provided for this purpose and envelopes should be used only when the packet is too big for a wrapper. If the hon. Member will let me have particulars of any case where an envelope has been used unnecessarily I will look into it.

Mr. Turton

Is the hon. Member aware that these large envelopes, one of which I hold in my hand, have been having a most demoralising effect on the would-be taxpayer in the last fortnight?
