HC Deb 02 May 1950 vol 474 c172W
Sir W. Darling

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he can estimate the number of persons and man-hours occupied annually in the unpaid collection of taxes through pay as you earn, Purchase Tax, entertainment tax, and other like demands, including National Insurance.

Sir S. Cripps

I am afraid that I am unable to make any estimate of these figures.
