§ Mr. J. HUDSON
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what is the annual number of individual claims for the repayment of Income Tax which had been deducted at source: what is the aggregate amount of the income on which the tax had been deducted in these cases; and what is the aggregate amount of such repayments?
The total number of Income Tax claims of all kinds in respect of which repayment of Income Tax was made in the year 1926–27 was approximately 1,540,000, and the aggregate amount of tax repaid was516W £43,777,000. The total income in respect of which tax was repaid in the year is estimated to have been about £180 millions. No record is available as to the number of these claims that related to Income Tax deducted at the source, but it may be assumed that the great majority fell into that category.
§ Major KINDERSLEY
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer the actual income upon which repayment of Income Tax has been made in England and Wales in 1926–27 on account of farm losses and actual income falling short of the amount assessed?
I would refer my hon. and gallant Friend to the reply given to him, in response to a similar question on 9th May last, to which I can add nothing.
