HC Deb 08 June 1920 vol 130 c252W

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer why it is that individuals who, as a result of their claims, get a refund of Income Tax, are unable to obtain from the Inland Revenue authorities the necessary particulars and vouchers on which the amount of the refund is based; and whether, in view of the fact that in such cases the Inland Revenue have obtained money to which they are not entitled, it is their duty to furnish the taxpayer for inspection if he requires it all the vouchers necessary to explain the account on which the refund is calculated?


The suggestion contained in the question must, I think, be based upon a misapprehension. If, however, my hon. and gallant Friend has in mind any specific case in which a claimant has been unable to obtain the necessary explanation of the amount of his Income Tax repayment I shall be pleased to look into the matter on receiving particulars.
