HC Deb 05 December 1974 vol 882 c568W
Mr. Arnold

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he has received the submission made on behalf of the Society of Authors in relation to the proposed wealth tax; and if he will make a statement on his policy towards it.

Dr. Gilbert

Yes. The way in which copyrights might be treated for wealth tax purposes was discussed in paragraph 40 of the Green Paper on Wealth Tax (Cmnd 5704). My right hon. Friend does not intend to make any further statement on the matter until it has been considered by the Select Committee which the Government have proposed.
