asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer the amount still outstanding in respect of Excess Profits Duty; the number of cases in which legal proceedings have been commenced with a view to recovery of duty; and the amount lost, or estimated to be lost, to the Treasury arising out of liquidation or bankruptcy proceedings?

Mr. CHAMBERLAIN:

The amount of Excess Profits Duty outstanding at 31st December last was £7,825,000. With regard to the remaining parts of the question, I am afraid that the information asked for is not at present available and its collection would involve considerable labour and expense.
