HC Deb 06 December 1926 vol 200 cc1685-6W

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he is considering the advisability in his forth-coming Budget of removing some of the disabilities that lie on the male sex, principally in regard to income tax; and whether, seeing that a husband is responsible for the return of his wife's income and for the payment of the tax upon it, he will supply the husband with legal means of recovering the amount from his wife in the event of her refusing to indemnify her husband?


I would refer the hon. Member to the reply which my right hon. Friend the Chancellor of the Exchequer gave on this subject to the hon. Member for Central Southwark (Colonel day) on the 30th November.
