HC Deb 08 February 1954 vol 523 c92W
Mr. Woodburn

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what, for the last available year, were the profits of industry and farming, respectively, before and after tax; and what was the total distributed in dividends, and the estimated tax to be deducted therefrom.

Mr. Maudling

I refer the right hon. Member to the statistics given in the Central Statistical Office publication "National Income and Expenditure 1946–52,"particularly in Tables 2 and 20. I regret that it is impossible to distinguish tax paid in respect either of farm incomes, or of dividend incomes, from tax paid in respect of other sources of income accruing to the same recipient.
