HC Deb 21 January 1941 vol 368 cc60-1W
Mr. Hannah

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether his attention has been drawn to the fact that the only class of the population to-day not seriously feeling the pinch of war conditions is unmarried men maintaining no establishments of their own; and will he consider the imposition of a tax on bachelors?

Sir K. Wood

My hon. Friend will not expect me to anticipate my Budget Statement.
