HC Deb 19 December 1912 vol 45 cc1700-1W
Captain CRAIG

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what amount of revenue was collected during the year ended 31st March, 1912, from Dublin and Belfast, respectively, from spirits, beer, wine, tobacco, tea, coffee, sugar, and other dutiable articles, licences of all kinds, Income Tax, all schedules including Supertax, and total of preceding items?


I am afraid I am not in a position to give separately more than the totals in the year 1911–12 for Customs, Excise, and Income Tax. The figures relate to the revenue collected at Dublin and Belfast, respectively, and give no indication of the taxes actually contributed by the population of the two cities:

Customs. Excise. Income Tax (estimated)
£ £ £
Dublin 466,918 2,289,792 390,000
Belfast 2,067,101 2,135,445 206,000
All Super-tax is collected from the Special Commissioners' Office in London.
