HC Deb 11 March 1935 vol 299 cc31-2W

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether his attention has been drawn to the assumed cost of repairs to property during the past 10 years, as stated in the last report of the Commissioners of Inland Revenue, page 63, namely, £849,000,000; whether the remission of income tax allowed on this assumption was, approximately, £195,000,000; and whether, with a view to ensure that the work of repairs is in fact carried out, he will again consider allowing the remission only on expenditure actually incurred?
