HC Deb 16 December 1948 vol 459 cc186-7W
58. Mr. Sutcliffe

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he is aware that Income Tax is being demanded from the recipients of small gifts of Savings Certificates made to them as employees for long service, although such gifts would appear to be similar to those already exempted, as Christmas gifts, from taxation; and whether he will take steps to remove this anomaly.

Mr. Jay

I regret that I cannot extend the concession referred to in my reply to my hon. and gallant Friend the Member for Brixton (Lieut.-Colonel Lipton) on 25th November.
