§ Mr. ALAN TODD
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether the introduction of Income Tax into East Africa is intended as a permanent or temporary measure; and whether its introduction is recommended as part of Imperial policy?
§ Sir P. CUNLIFFE-LISTER
I would refer my hon. Friend to the answer given to the hon. and gallant Member for Berwick (Captain Todd) on the 22nd March in which I stated the reasons for the introduction of Income Tax and the policy which would be followed if and when taxation can be reduced.
