HC Deb 22 February 1955 vol 537 cc126-7W
63 and 65. Mr. Nally

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer (1) if he will investigate the growing number of football clubs' financial transactions involving inaccurate and misleading tax returns being made by the clubs and individuals concerned, with a view to taking proceedings; and

(2) what evidence he has now received from Mr. Robert Smith and Mr. Wilfred Mannion as to football transfer negotiations that have been completed in circumstances involving undisclosed cash payments and other arrangements designed to evade taxation.

Mr. R. A. Butler

I can assure the hon. Member that this matter has not escaped the notice of the Inland Revenue but I cannot deal, in answers to Questions, with the affairs of individual taxpayers.
