HC Deb 19 February 1947 vol 433 cc180-1W
75. Sir G. Fox

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether he will provide figures showing for each of the East African territories the present relative percentage of contributions to direct and indirect taxation, with particular reference to Income Tax, dividing these figures, so far as possible, over the European, Indian and native communities, respectively.

Mr. Creech Jones

As a result of a similar Question asked on 13th May, 1946, my predecessor consulted the East African Governments and subsequently informed the hon. and gallant Member that the figures which he requires are not available.
