§ Mr. BRIDGEMAN
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he proposes that civil servants and officers of the Navy and 1426 Army residing abroad on duty should be compelled to pay the full income tax on their private incomes, however small?
§ Sir HENRY KIMBER
asked whether the Budget proposal regarding the discontinuance of income tax relief in certain cases applies to all persons, irrespective of nationality, resident out of the United Kingdom, the Channel Islands, and the Isle of Man; and, if so, would any exception be made, or any concession be allowed, in the case of officers in the Imperial services stationed abroad whilst receiving pay from the Home Government?
§ Mr. SMEATON
asked whether residents abroad to whom rebates or abatements of income tax are not in future to be allowed include foreigners only, or whether British subjects resident in India, the Colonies, or elsewhere abroad will be included; and whether Government officials resident out of India in the execution of their duty will be debarred from claiming such abatements or exemption as they have hitherto enjoyed?
§ Mr. LLOYD-GEORGE
I will at the same time deal with the questions put to me by the hon. Baronet the Member for Wandsworth and by the hon. Member for Stirlingshire. I do not intend that the proposed restriction of exemptions and abatements to persons resident in the United Kingdom should apply, subject to proper safeguards, to Civil servants, military or naval officers, and others residing abroad on duty, who are in receipt of salaries out of moneys provided by Parliament.
