HC Deb 01 March 1909 vol 1 cc1238-9W

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what was the amount of the income received from Foreign investments in the years 1900, 1904, and 1908?


As will be seen from pages 182℃3 of the 51st Report of the Commissioners of Inland Revenue, it is impossible to give any complete figures of income received from Foreign investments. The Gross Income from abroad brought under review for Income Tax purposes, so far as it can be identified in the statistics of the tax, amounted in 1906–7 (the latest year for which figures are available) to £79,560,000. The corresponding figures for the years 1900℃01 and 1904℃5 are:—

1900℃1901 £60,332,000.
1904℃1905 £66,062,000.

The figure for 1907℃8 is not available.
