HC Deb 04 July 1950 vol 477 c244
47. Mr. Gammans

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if, in view of the small number of cases that have been reported, he will now discontinue his practice of paying to informers of currency offences sums of money free of Income Tax and without disclosure of name.

Sir S. Cripps

No rewards have yet been paid. I propose to reconsider the matter at the end of the year.

Mr. Gammans

Could the Chancellor not reconsider this matter before then? It is quite obvious that this practice is not only repulsive to the British public, but unsuccessful.

Sir S. Cripps

It does not necessarily mean that it may not be successful in the future.
