§ Mr. Stratton Mills
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer, how many times the Inland Revenue have used their powers under the Finance Act, 1962 to obtain information concerning short-term Capital Gains Tax; and if he will set out in tabular form the source of inquiry.
§ Mr. MacDermot
These powers are available where there has been a suspected failure to make an adequate return. It would not be in the public interest to disclose particulars of their use.
