HC Deb 19 July 1966 vol 732 cc54-5W
Mr. Dance

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will state the total tax paid by the companies listed in Schedule 1 to the Iron and Steel Bill during the five years ended April 1965.

Mr. MacDermot

It is not the practice to give figures about narrow groups of taxpayers but the tax assessed on the iron and steel industry as a whole was as follows:—

Year of assessment Income Tax and Profits Tax £million
1960–61 57
1961–62 78
1962–63 62
1963–64 44
1964–65 41
Total 282

These figures exclude the Income Tax on investment income.
