§ Mr. A. SHAW
asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury the amount raised by Income Tax in this country upon shipping of the United States of America; whether ships owned by the American Government are subjected to such taxation; and, if so, upon what grounds?
The information asked for in the first part of the question is not available; as regards the question of the taxation of tonnage owned by a foreign Government or by a Dominion Government, I would refer my hon. Friend to the reply which I gave on the 17th August last to the hon. Member for Wrexham (Sir R. Thomas). I am sending my hon. Friend a copy of that reply.
