§ Mr. Madden
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer how many persons have received golden handshakes in the last five years in excess of £50,000; what was the total amount received; and what was the total tax liability.
§ Mr. Denzil Davies
I regret that this information is not available. "Golden handshake" payments are assessable under Schedule E and the statistics relating to Schedule E assessments do not distinguish them from other Schedule E income.
