HC Deb 26 June 1951 vol 489 cc119-20W
77. Mr. Albu

asked the President of the Board of Trade if, in the next Census of Production, he will obtain information on rents, rates, taxes and depreciation.

Mr. Rhodes

The scope of the Census of Production in respect of the year 1951 was announced in the Board of Trade Journal of 6th January last. From that announcement, it will be seen that information about rents, rates, taxes and depreciation will not be included in the Census of Production for 1951. Statistics of trading profits and depreciation allowances by trade groups were published in Cmd. 8052 and in forthcoming reports of the Commissioners of Inland Revenue it is proposed to publish information on these subjects and on the division of net profits between tax, dividends and sums placed to reserve.
