HC Deb 19 June 1941 vol 372 c838W
Mr. Richards

asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury whether the appointment of an inspector of banking accounts has been considered as the best means to prevent the loss of revenue to the Treasury due to tax evasion which is being practised and which is likely to increase with the higher taxation imposed?

Captain Crookshank

I do not consider that there is any evasion of tax of the kind suggested by the hon. Member which would warrant official inspection of banking accounts.
