HC Deb 19 September 1940 vol 365 c210W
Mr. Crowder

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether, prior to the introduction of his next Budget, he will consider appointing a committee to investigate the possibility of imposing a form of Excess Profits Tax on incomes based on war increases, as compared with incomes for any one of the three years prior to the commencement of the war?

Sir K. Wood

I have duly noted my hon. Friend's suggestion in connection with further Budget proposals, but I do not think the appointment of a committee would be an appropriate or convenient course.
