§ 23. Mr. Hale
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer, in view of the fact that Mr. Jack Cronwell, of Oldham, is in jeopardy of imprisonment for the Income Tax liability of £4 9s. 3d., that he has been unemployed for eight months, and that he has over £50 of post-war credits outstanding but has been refused repayment because his wife has since commenced work, if he will now take the necessary administrative steps to enable this man to repay his Income Tax debt by the release of the post-war credits owing to him.
I assume that the hon. Member is referring to the case of Mr. Jack Cromwell, who owes £4 9s. 3d. tax. My hon. and learned friend, the Financial Secretary, has written to the hon. Member[...]reply to his letter about this case.
