HC Deb 23 January 1951 vol 483 c34
72. Sir H. Williams

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what is the Income Tax per head of the population collected in the latest year for which the statistics are available in England, Wales and Scotland, respectively.

Mr. Gaitskell

In 1949–50, the Income Tax collected in England and Wales per head of population was £30, and in Scotland £20. Separate figures for Wales are not available. These figures are not necessarily an indication of the Income Tax contributed by England and Wales, and by Scotland respectively, since the income of a person resident in Scotland may be charged to tax under an assessment in England or Wales, or vice versa.
