HC Deb 06 May 1927 vol 205 cc1907-8W

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer the latest available figures of the number of persons assessed to super-tax in receipt of more than £5,000 a year, and their total income, and the corresponding figures for the year 1913–14?

England and Wales, and how many women are serving on other local authorities?


I have no official information on this subject, but from particulars furnished to me I gather that the services of women are available to an approximately equal extent (by means of either direct or indirect election or co-option) on boards of guardians and their committees on the one hand, and on county and county borough councils and their committees on the other, the figures in each case being approximately 2,000. I am not in possession-of similar particulars as regards other local authorities.
