HC Deb 20 July 1965 vol 716 c182W
38. Mr. Arthur Lewis

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer why the Inland Revenue department divulged details of a disallowance of a £98,227 part expense claim by Mr. Wilfred Harvey, chairman of the British Printing Corporation.

Mr. MacDermot

The Inland Revenue made no such disclosure. The published accounts of Purnell & Sons Ltd. for 1962 and 1963 indicated, in accordance with the Companies Act, 1948, that certain sums paid to a director of the company in previous years in respect of expenses had been disallowed for tax purposes.
