§ 51. Mr. TINKER
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he is in a position to state the amount of Death Duties derived in the years 1926, 1927 and 1928, respectively, from estates where the persons left to participate in such estates have not been sons and daughters, wife or husband; and, if not, will he take steps to ascertain these figures?
§ Mr. P. SNOWDEN
I regret that the information asked for by my hon. Friend is not available, but he will find certain relevant statistics in the Annual Reports of the Commissioners of Inland Revenue, such as the classification made in Tables 14, 28 and 29 of the Seventy-First Annual Report.
§ Mr. TINKER
Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that the information asked for would be useful to him in enabling him to determine what extra taxation will be brought in by way of increasing the Death Duties?
