HC Deb 06 March 1958 vol 583 c1325
30. Mr. Arbuthnot

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer the estimated increase in taxation revenue anticipated from a full year's operation of the Rent Act, 1957.

Mr. Simon

I regret that there is not yet enough information on which to make an estimate.

Mr. Shinwell

Is it possible that, arising from this matter, though landlords will nay more taxation, tenants will have nothing left with which to pay tax?

Mr. Simon

No, Sir. One would expect that the landlords would certainly have to pay more tax in so far as their rents are raised.
