§ Colonel DAY
asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury what proportion of fees payable to collectors of Income Tax are payable by such officers in respect of office expenses necessarily incurred in carrying out their duties?
§ Mr. McNEILL
Collectors are paid a gross sum to cover both their office expenses and their personal remuneration. Particulars are not available of the sums actually paid by collectors of taxes in respect of their expenses. As these vary considerably between collections of different types, there can be no fixed proportion between expenses and emoluments.
