§ 31. Mr. Frank Allaun
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer how many appeals have been made to the Commissioners of Inland Revenue over allowances against taxable profit of company expenditure on political campaigns.
§ Mr. Allaun
Then will the Financial Secretary now tell the House whether or not this expenditure is being allowed? Since this concerns not individual concerns but a general principle of tax law, is it not deliberately flouting the House 608 of Commons to refuse it this information?
§ Mr. J. Griffiths
I wonder whether the hon. and learned Gentleman could now or at some other time say whether the amount spent on this purpose and exempted has been increasing recently?
