HC Deb 07 February 1956 vol 548 c1490
27. Mr. Page

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will enter into negotiations with India for a double taxation relief agreement whereby estate duty paid in India will be allowed against estate payable in the United Kingdom upon Indian assets of a person dying domiciled in the United Kingdom.

The Chancellor of the Exchequer (Mr. Harold Macmillan)

Negotiations on this subject took place last month and I hope that the resulting agreement will be signed shortly.

Mr. Page

Is my right hon. Friend aware that that Answer will give great satisfaction? In the negotiations, will he call attention to the satisfactory arrangements which this country has on this subject with the United States, the Netherlands, the Union of South Africa and Canada?
