§ 64. Lieut.-Commander Braithwaite
asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury why the Departmental Claims Branch, Cardiff, is sending demands for arrears of Income Tax to ex-officers of His Majesty's Forces three years after demobilisation.
§ Mr. Glenvil Hall
Because of the delay that has occurred in some cases, which I very much regret. This delay was due to the necessity to collect full details of pay and tax deducted and to the great volume of work falling on a limited staff.
