§ 54. Mr. Houghton
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer how many of the 7,937 investigations into under-assessment of profits for the four years 1948 to 1951 inclusive, Command Paper No. 8436, were the subject of criminal proceedings.
§ Mr. R. A. Butler
The figures in the table in Cmd. No. 8436 to which the hon. Member refers relate to cases where a pecuniary settlement was effected because they were not thought suitable for criminal proceedings.
