HC Deb 05 June 1924 vol 174 cc1489-90W

asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury what would have been the approximate annual cost to the Treasury if provisions similar to those of Section 14 of the Finance Act, 1910, as extended by the Death Duties (Killed in War) Act. 1914, had been in operation for officers and men killed on duty during the 10 years preceding the outbreak of the Great War in 1914; and what would have been the approximate extra average annual costs if Section 46 of the Finance (No. 2) Act, 1915, if Section 44 of the Finance Act, 1918, and if Section 31 of the Finance Act, 1919, respectively, had been in operation?


I regret that the information asked for by the hon. and gallant Member is unobtainable.
