§ Mr. DUCKWORTH
asked the Chancelloor of the Exchequer the amount of Income Tax and Super-Tax outstanding at the latest available date?
§ Mr. CHURCHILL
It is estimated that at 30th September last the amount of Super-tax outstanding which will ultimately prove to be collectible was about £9,000,000 after allowing for all discharges and reductions that may be made. A corresponding estimate cannot be given for the Income Tax, as the only information available as to the arrears of Income Tax outstanding relates to the amount due for prior years which it is estimated will be collected during the current financial year. At 30th September last it was estimated that the arrear due for 1927, and prior years (including the arrear of the second instalment of the 1927 tax due on 1st July, 1928), which is expected to be collected before the close of this year, was about £13,000,00.
