§ 42. Mr. Douglas Houghton
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer how many employers, as at any recent date, were known to the Income Tax authorities to be holding money deducted by them from the wages and salaries of their employees under Pay-As-You-Earn more than six months previously; and what is the estimated amount involved.
§ Sir S. Cripps
On 27th September, 1947, the latest date for which precise information is at present available, the amount of tax deducted for 1946–47 and earlier years and reported by employers but not paid over by that date was £627,000. No information is available centrally either as to the number of employers involved or as to tax which may have been deducted but not reported by that date.
§ 45. Sir W. Smithers
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer why tax reclaimed by persons with incomes derived from England living in Jersey is still six months and more overdue in repayment.
§ Sir S. Cripps
If the hon. Member will give me particulars of the cases he has in mind, I will have inquiries made and communicate with him as soon as possible.
§ 56. Mrs. Ridealgh
asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury whether his regulations permit a person denied compensation for war damage, due to a too late claim, to claim Income Tax relief on the amount paid in respect of war damage repairs to his property.
§ The Financial Secretary to the Treasury (Mr. Glenvil Hall)
In the circumstances described in my hon. Friend's Question, the cost of the repairs may be included in a claim for relief under Rule 8 of No. V of Schedule A of the Income Tax Act, 1918, if the total expenditure on maintenance, repairs, etc., to the property, on the five years' average, exceeds the flat-rate repairs allowance.
§ Mrs. Ridealgh
Will my right hon. Friend then explain why, if these war 204 damage repairs have not been accepted, ordinary repairs have been accepted in this way?
§ Mr. Glenvil Hall
If my hon. Friend will send me the particulars of any case she has in mind, I will certainly have them looked into.
