(2) what departures have been made contrary to the assurance given by the Solicitor-General on 22nd June, 1948, that the Special Commissioners of Income Tax would not issue directions under Part IX, Chapter III, of the Income Tax Act, 1952, in respect of the final period of accounting of companies going into liquidation for the purposes of reconstruction or amalgamation; and upon what date the practice was altered.41W
§ Mr. Boyd-Carpenter
There have been no changes in the general practices to which my hon. Friend refers. If he has any particular cases in mind I shall be glad to look into them if he will write to me about them.
