HC Deb 02 December 1920 vol 135 cc1479-80W

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what is the total amount of revenue received up to date in respect of the current financial year; how much of it represents special miscellaneous receipts; and, in respect of both ordinary and special receipts, to what extent he anticipates that his Budget Estimates will be realised?


The amount of Revenue received up to the 27th November inclusive, as shown in the weekly return of Exchequer Issues and Receipts, was £799,271,680, of which £188,866,092 represented special Miscellaneous Receipts. I anticipate considerable variations from the Budget Estimates under particular heads, but as far as I can at present see, the final outcome of the year will not be materially affected.
