HC Deb 07 March 1938 vol 332 cc1545-6W
Mr. Price

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he can state the amount collected in Land Tax in the last full financial year and the approximate cost of collection during the same period?

Sir J. Simon

The net receipt of Land Tax in the year to 31st March, 1937, was £530,041. It is not possible to distinguish the cost of collection of Land Tax from the cost of the duties of the Inland Revenue Department generally, as the administration of the tax is bound up with that of other taxes.
