HC Deb 11 July 1922 vol 156 cc1071-2W

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he can give the approxi- mate cost of the Department which deals with the delivery of increment value duty particulars, the number of persons engaged in dealing with the forms and statistics, and the percentage of the particulars which are used for Government purposes, during the year 1921?


The staff employed in England and Wales on the work in question numbers 29, the cost being approximately £6,000 for the year 1921. Use is made of all the particulars which are presented. I would remind my hon. Friend that the utility of this information was the subject of discussion in Committee of this House on the 28th ultimo when my hon. and learned Friend the Solicitor-General explained the position in detail.
