HC Deb 17 April 1946 vol 421 cc446-7W
32. Mrs. Middleton

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether he will revise the law disallowing tax exemption for expenditure on housing or welfare under the East African tax ordinances, as this law acts as a direct deterrent to providing improved accommodation and amenities for workers.

Mr. George Hall

Steps are being taken to meet this point. The East African Governments propose to introduce legislation giving similar treatment in respect of housing to that provided under the United Kingdom Income Tax Act of 1945.
