asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what was the aggregate amount of tax collected in the Isle of Wight for each of the three tax years ended 5th April, 1969, in respect of income tax, surtax, capital gains tax, and selective employment tax, respectively.
§ Mr. Taverne
No figures are available for surtax, which is collected centrally, or in respect of the collection and refund of S.E.T. Figures for the other two items mentioned are:
