§ 8. Mr. GODFREY COLLINS
asked what is the total amount received by the National Exchequer through the operation of the Settlement Estate Duty, 1894; and the amount which would have been received on these estates if, instead, only Death Duties had been paid?
§ Mr. LLOYD GEORGE
The amount of Settlement Estate Duty paid in 1894–5 was about £20,000, but I regret that I can make no estimate of the amount of Estate Duty which would have been chargeable since that date in respect of the estates which paid Settlement Estate Duty at that date if the provisions in regard to settled estates had not been in operation.
