HC Deb 03 July 1913 vol 54 c2202W

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether papers relating to the estate of Maria Goucher, deceased, who died on 23rd November, 1887, were submitted to the Board of Inland Revenue, Estate Duty Department (D.B. 1,105,797/ 13), several years ago; whether those papers are still awaiting the decision of the Board as to the amount of duty payable; if so, what is the reason for the continued delay in the matter; and whether he will give directions that the matter may be promptly dealt with and decided?


No trace can be found in the Estate Duty Office of such papers as are referred to by the hon. and learned Member. The other parts of the question, therefore, do not arise.
