HC Deb 12 April 1921 vol 140 c957W

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he will take steps to reduce the proposed large expenditure on additional offices throughout the country for the collection of Income Tax, etc., having regard to the great number of persons who will cease to be liable for payment of Income Tax by reduced wages and other causes?]

Lieut.-Commander YOUNG

The expenditure to which my hon. Friend refers is the minimum essential to provide for the efficient assessment and collection of Inland Revenue duties, having regard to all the relevant circumstances, including those to which he calls attention. The administration is at the present time very gravely hampered by inadequate accommodation.
