Mr. Thorne

asked the Chancellor of the the Exchequer whether he can give any information in connection with the charges made against the Beau craft Furniture Company, Bethnal Green, for a Purchase Tax evasion; and what was the value of the goods on which the tax had been evaded and the total loss to the revenue?

Sir K. Wood

This firm was charged with furnishing false tax returns, producing and using false documents and making false statements in connection with the tax. The value of the goods involved was not less than £4,200, on which the tax evaded was about £1,400.
