HC Deb 28 January 1969 vol 776 cc285-6W
Mr. Donald Williams

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will give an estimate of the administrative cost involved in a full year to deal with claims for the refund of Selective Employment Tax and import deposits.

Mr. Harold Lever

The cost of dealing with claims for refund of Selective Employment Tax is estimated at £1.4 million a year. The cost of administering the import deposit scheme is estimated and Japan, based on information he derives from international organisations.

Mr. Taverne

I will, with permission, circulate a table in the OFFICIAL REPORT:

at £400,000 for a full year, of which half is attributable to the refund work.
