HC Deb 13 April 1948 vol 449 c57W
41. Mr. Donner

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether the once for all levy on investment income is to apply to such cases where, as a result of difficult business conditions during the war, arrears of preference dividends were only paid in 1947–48; or whether such arrears of preference dividends shall be deemed to be outside the scope of the levy, this latter applying only to the preference dividends for the year 1947–48.

Sir S. Cripps

I must ask the hon. Member to await the publication of the Finance Bill.
