I am sorry if I have gone wide of the Amendment. The point I am trying to make is that so long as taxes are paid in a different year from that in which they are received, and so long as the monetary policy of the Government is unstable, it is impossible to get a fair measure of taxation with any acceptable incidence of any certain tax. It is for that reason that I hope the Chancellor of the Exchequer will arrange, if he is in office next year when the next Budget is introduced, that there shall be some regard paid to that point.
