HC Deb 12 February 1930 vol 235 c449W

asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury whether he is aware of the issue of letters from the West Ham area of tax collectors threatening a warrant of distress and levy upon the household goods of persons due to pay amounts as low as 12s.; and whether he will consider issuing instructions to discontinue this practice?


I have no information as to any particular cases. If, however, my hon. Friend will give me particulars of any case in which it is alleged that a collector of taxes is carrying out his duties in an unreasonable manner, I will gladly cause inquiry to be made and communicate the result to him in due course.
