§ Sir T. DAVIES
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what amount of super-tax remained unpaid on 1st April, 1924, and on 1st April, 1925; and what steps 347W are taken to enforce payment of any arrears?
§ Mr. CHURCHILL
The amount of Super-tax not paid in respect of which a demand for payment had been issued was £25,973,000 on 1st April, 1924, and £25,000,000 on 1st April, 1925. These figures would include charges to duty that were under appeal or under further inquiry. The collection of arrears of tax is continually proceeding and the rate of collection has now improved.
