Sir SEYMOUR KING
asked the Chancellor whether he can now state approximately for the year ending 5th April, 1910, the number of Income Tax payers on incomes below £5,000 a year; the number of Income Tax payers on incomes over £5,000 a year; and the aggregate amount of income disclosed in each category?
§ Mr. LLOYD GEORGE
The number of persons liable to Super-tax for 1909–10 is approximately 10,300. The aggregate amount of income liable to Super-tax for 1909–10 is, approximately, £130,700,000. No figures as to ordinary Income Tax are available, nor can any trustworthy estimate of the number of Income Tax payers be given.
