HC Deb 08 April 1952 vol 498 cc203-4W
75. Mr. Roy Jenkins

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what is his estimate of the loss of revenue which will follow from the reduced liability to Profits Tax of those companies which will not attract the Excess Profits Levy.

Mr. R. A. Butler

It is obviously impossible to make such an estimate. The question whether particular companies will or will not be liable to Excess Profits Levy can only be ascertained when their profits for 1952 are known.
