HC Deb 07 June 1944 vol 400 cc1364-5W
Sir W. Edge

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs if he has any information as to the number of countries raising the bulk of their revenue by tariffs or by a substantial income tax and tariffs, respectively.

Mr. George Halt

I refer the hon. Member for the information he seeks to the volumes entitled "Public Finance 1928–1935" and "Public Finance 1928–1937," which were published by the Economic Intelligence Service of the League of Nations in the years 1936 to 1939. Copies will be deposited temporarily in the Library. Comparable statistics for the war years are not available.
