HC Deb 14 July 1919 vol 118 c47W

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he is aware that the casual labourer at the docks is being assessed for Income Tax both on the current quarter and the previous quarter of the present year; and, owing to the fact that it is financially impossible for a casual labourer to meet such a charge, will he reconsider the application for the payment of such a tax by men so situated?


I am not aware of the circumstances stated in the first part of the question, and I have asked the Commissioners of Inland Revenue to communicate with the hon. Member, and if he will give them particulars of the eases that he has in mind inquiry shall be made.
