§ Mr. HARTSHORN
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will state the gross assessments for Income Tax of coal mines in the United Kingdom and the amount of Income Tax and Excess Profits Tax paid for each year since 1911–12; and can he also give the same information as regards coal mines in Monmouthshire and Wales?
§ Mr. BALDWIN
The gross Income Tax assessments for the earlier years since 1911–12 are as follow:
Year of Assessment. Gross Assessment to Income Tax on the Profits of Coal Mines. In the United Kingdom. In Monmouthshire and Wales. £ £ 1911–12 18,347,709 4,856,133 1912–13 19,068,927 4,911,873 1913–14 18,232,915 4,709,504 1914–15 19,962,324 —
No separate records are compiled of the Income Tax receipt from this source, and since 1914–15 it has been necessary, owing to depletion of staff, to suspend the compilation of the figures of gross assessment. For the same reason it has not been possible to undertake the laborious task of classifying the receipts of Excess Profits Duty under the various classes of trade.
