HC Deb 16 July 1913 vol 55 c1258W

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer the amount of Tax Revenue contributed, respectively, during the financial year 1912–13 by England, excluding Monmouthshire, Scotland, Ireland, and Wales, including Monmouthshire, and in each case the amount per head of population thus contributed; and the rate per £ such taxation amounts to upon the total income assessed under Schedules A, B, D, and E in the respective countries?


Particulars as to Tax Revenue in 1912–13 will be found in the Financial Relations Returns which were presented yesterday and of which copies will be available shortly. These Returns, however, relate only to England and Wales, to Scotland and to Ireland; and no separate information as to Wales and Monmouthshire is available. As regards the last part of the question, figures as to the gross income reviewed under each Schedule of the Income Tax in England and Wales, Scotland and Ireland in 1912–13, though not yet available, could be given at a later date, but I might perhaps point out that the Tax Revenue contributed by a country corresponds rather to the gross income owned in the country than to gross income reviewed for Income Tax purposes in that country.
