HC Deb 09 November 1948 vol 457 c1382
64. Commander Noble

asked the Economic Secretary to the Treasury on what basis are Inland Revenue Forms. P. 45 and P. 46, issued to employers.

Mr. Jay

Tax offices are instructed to send employers their reasonable requirements of these forms.

Commander Noble

Would it not be better if employers were allowed to demand these forms when they wanted them, because a firm in my constituency has just been issued with a supply which they estimate will last them for 100 years?

Mr. Jay

I am sure that if any firm notifies the tax office that they are getting more than their reasonable requirements then the office will take that into account.
