HC Deb 02 August 1944 vol 402 c1416W
Sir W. Smithers

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will arrange for the revenue from Income Tax, Surtax, National Defence Contribution and Excess Profits Tax, recorded in the Treasury's statement of revenue and expenditure, to be subdivided to show under each of those headings what payments have been made in cash and how much represents the application to tax revenue of holdings of Tax Reserve Certificates and accrued interest thereon.

Sir J. Anderson

No, Sir. My hon. Friend's proposal would unduly complicate the Exchequer Returns and would be of no practical advantage.
