HC Deb 13 December 1922 vol 159 cc2951-2W
Colonel NEWMAN

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether, in appointing the Committee to investigate as to the simplification of Income Tax forms, he will invite representations from the National Citizens Union and similar organisations representing the taxpayer?


I understand my hon. and gallant Friend to refer to the constitution of the Committee. I am not yet in a position to announce the constitu- tion, but I shall take pains to secure that the point of view of the taxpayer is fairly reflected therein.

Brigadier-General COLVIN

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he can give an estimate of the amount lost to the revenue during the last financial year through the exemption of farmers who had sustained losses from paying Income Tax?


I regret that the information for which my hon. and gallant Friend asks is not available.
