HC Deb 21 September 1948 vol 456 cc59-60W
Mr. Gammans

asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury if he will give an assurance that his regulations will permit Malayan Government pensioners and others at present domiciled in this country, who are now subject to Malayan Income Tax, to take this fact into account in their payment of British Income Tax.

Mr. Glenvil Hall

Persons who are liable to pay both Malayan Income Tax and United Kingdom Income Tax in respect of the same income are entitled to a measure of relief from United Kingdom Income Tax in accordance with Section 27. Finance Act, 1920. As regards Malayan Government pensioners it is hoped that it will be possible to arrange for this relief to be taken into account in arriving at the amount of United Kingdom tax to be deducted from the pensions. I will write to the hon. Member as soon as my inquiries are completed.

Mr. Hollis

asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury whether it was by his authority that H.M. Inspector of Taxes at Bath wrote in his own handwriting on the Income Tax Claim for Allowances (51/2545/749) addressed to Mr. G. Beswick, of Willoughbys, Easterton Road, Devizes, that if this form was not returned to his office within seven days, he would be reduced to Code 1; and what steps he proposes to take to prevent such actions.

Mr. Glenvil Hall

I have written to the hon. Member about this case.
