§ 60. Major Lyons
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether his regulations impose a liability for Income Tax assessment on moneys paid as loss of wages or income for the period of disablement consequent upon personal injury suffered by the wage-earner and upon what basis.
§ Sir J. Anderson
A lump sum of damages awarded in respect of loss of wages suffered by a wage-earner for a period of incapacity caused by personal injury would not be regarded as income for Income Tax purposes. If my hon. and gallant Friend has any particular case in mind I suggest that he should send me particulars in order that I may have inquiries made into the facts.
