§ colonel BURTON
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what was the number of Income Tax payers for the years 1914 and 1924; and the number of Super-tax payers in the same years?
§ Mr. CHURCHILL
The estimated numbers of individuals with total incomes above the effective exemption limit of the Income Tax for the years in question are as follows:
those European Governments that have abolished capital punishment; the ratio of capital offences to population in those countries for the years 1923–24; and the ratio of capital offences to population in Great Britain for the years 1923–24?
§ Sir W. JOYNSON-HICKS
I am unable to give the information referred to in the first and second parts of the question, and therefore the third part of the question does not appear to arise.
