§ Mr. LEVERTON HARRIS
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he can say what was the net amount of income tax collected for the financial year 1908–9 under schedule D.
The HON. MEMBER
further asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer (1) if he can give the net total profits declared for income tax under schedule D for the financial year 1908–9, showing separately the actual total profits of each year upon which the triennial average is struck; (2) if he can say what was the gross capital of the estates passing at death in the United Kingdom, during the financial year 1908–9, of which the Commissioners of Inland Revenue had notice, including capital on which estate duty was commuted in that year before death, in the form given in Table LXXIV. of the Commissioners' Report, 1908?
§ Mr. HOBHOUSE
The statistics for which the hon. Member asks are not yet completed. The Report of the Commissioners of Inland Revenue for the current year will contain the desired estate duty figures for 1908–9, but the income tax statistics are always a year behind, and those in the new Report will accordingly relate to 1907–8.
