§ Lieut.-Colonel ACLAND-TROYTE
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer the amount of Estate and Succession Duties paid in respect of agricultural land for the years 1932 and 1933, respectively; and whether the figures given include duties on timber?
These payments are not separately recorded, but it is estimated that for the year 1932–33 the Estate Duty paid on agricultural property amounted to £1,991,000 and the Succession Duty to about £235,000. It is too soon to formulate any estimate for the current year. The figures given do not include duties on timber.
