HC Deb 26 January 1954 vol 522 cc220-1W
20. Mr. Simon

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer the anticipated yield from death duties at five yearly intervals over the next 25 years, assuming they retain their present levels and that the pound sterling retains its present value.

Mr. Boyd-Carpenter

I am afraid that any answer that I gave to this Question could be no more than a guess.
