HC Deb 24 March 1976 vol 908 cc213-4W
Mr. Roderick

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will publish figures to show the effect of capital gains tax, estate duty and capital transfer tax on farms of 100, 150, 200, 250, 300, 400 and 500 acres pre-1974 and post-1974.

Mr. Denzil Davies

The figures are as follows:

frequency with which such forms are required, the number of questions asked and the use to which the information so obtained is put; and what steps he is taking to reduce such form filling.

Mr. Robert Sheldon

I regret that the information asked for could be provided only at disproportionate cost. Completion of forms is sought only when there is a need for it.
