§ Sir Richard Glyn
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what was the cost of collection of Inland Revenue duties at the existing rate for each £1 million for each of the last five years to the last convenient date; and what is the estimated cost of collection if the standard rate of Income Tax were increased by one shilling and by two shillings in the £1.
§ Mr. MacDermot
I would refer the hon. Member to Table 6 of the annual report of the Board of Inland Revenue. The extra cost of collection of an extra one or two shillings in the Standard Rate of Income Tax would be negligible.
