HC Deb 08 June 1920 vol 130 cc251-2W

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer (1) whether he is aware that chartered accountants are making large fortunes entirely due to the Excess Profits Duty; and whether, in view of this fact, he will take steps so that this duty shall apply to this profession; (2) whether, in view of the fact that barristers can earn £40,000 per annum and more, he will take steps in order that the Excess Profits Duty shall apply to this profession?


I am not prepared to adopt the suggestions of my hon. Friend.
