HC Deb 18 October 1949 vol 468 cc480-1
45. Mr. Norman Bower

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he can give any estimate of the amount of tax lost to the revenue in a year through the free distribution of coal to miners by the National Coal Board and the provision of free travel facilities to railway employees by British Railways.

Sir S. Cripps

I regret that I cannot say what tax would be paid if benefits in kind like those referred to were made liable to tax.
