HC Deb 28 February 1917 vol 90 c2041W
Colonel YATE

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether an officer serving either at home or abroad without pay is disallowed the benefit of having his Super-tax income assessed on the present year, whereas an officer who receives payment is allowed that privilege; and whether steps will be taken to remedy a policy which penalises those who give their services for nothing?


The Commissioners of Inland Revenue are unable to trace any case of the kind referred to in the question; but if my hon. and gallant Friend can furnish me with the particulars of any such case, I will gladly take the matter into consideration.
