HC Deb 13 May 1931 vol 252 cc1200-1W

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer with reference to the Seventy-third Report of the Commissioners of Inland Revenue, page 68. table 49, what proportion of the item, "Gross income, Houses, etc.," amounting to £363,787,921, represents income from houses, etc., and from sites; if the proportion derived from sites was taxed at its capital value at the rate of one penny in the £ what sum would this produce; and if the exemption and reduction set out in the same table, together with the item, "Lands, etc.," were deducted from the gross amount, what revenue would be produced if this lessened amount was subject to a similar tax?


The figure to which the hon. Member refers cannot be apportioned so as to show how much of the annual value is attributable to the building and how much is attributable to the site.
