HC Deb 25 February 1914 vol 58 cc1778-9W

asked the Secretary to the Treasury at what dates the final notices for collection of Income Tax, giving seven days for payment, are to be issued in London and England generally; whether, in such respect, London is treated as one district; and whether distraint under these notices will be resorted to at exactly the same time as under the seven days' notice already issued in the Greenock district in Scotland?


The final notices for London and for England generally have been in process of issue since the 20th instant. It is impossible to fix beforehand the actual dates of issue either in London, which comprises numerous collecting areas and cannot be treated as a single district, or in other parts of England. It is likewise not possible to fix exactly the dates when distraint proceedings will actually.commence in the various districts.
