HC Deb 09 March 1922 vol 151 c1522W
Major GLYN

asked the Secretary for Scotland whether he has considered the advisability of encouraging the building of houses by private enterprise by means of obtaining Treasury sanction for the exemption of the builder and the lender of money used in the construction of houses from Income Tax at the rate of 6s. in the pound upon all houses built during the forthcoming five years, the rentals of which would be under £30 per annum, and the type of house of a size containing from two apartments, with bathroom, built in tenements not exceeding four stories in height?


Proposals of this nature have been brought to my notice, and are now receiving my consideration.
