§ Mr. P. SNOWDEN
The hon. Member-will appreciate that I am unable to anticipate the contents of my forthcoming Budget. If, however, he has in mind a particular case in which, in his opinion, the existing law bears hardly upon a charitable organisation, and will supply me with full particulars, I shall be happy to inquire into the matter.
