§ Mr. Wigley
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what was the revenue from income tax collected in each county of Wales and in Wales as a whole for the last available year.
§ Mr. Robert Sheldon
Gross receipts from income tax collected in the counties of Wales in 1973–74 were as follows:
County Income Tax collected £m Clwyd … … 21.4 Dyfed … … 25.1 Mid Glamorgan … … 30.2 South Glamorgan … … 88.9 West Glamorgan … … 39.7 Gwent … … 38.2 Gywnedd … … 10.5 WALES … … 254.1
These figures include an unknown amount of tax collected in Wales in respect of taxpayers resident outside Wales, and do not include an unknown amount of tax collected in England in 495W respect of taxpayers resident in Wales. In particular, the figures for South Glamorgan include £30.2 million tax collected by Cardiff (Marine) office in respect of seafarers and also a relatively small amount of tax collected by the Public Department offices at Cardiff. PAYE tax for public servants dealt with by these offices it not collected in Wales.
