asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he will explain in what form the amount of the portion of tax for refund after the war credited to the individual taxpayer is made known to the worker; and how soon such information will be broadcast?

A formal notice of the amount of his post-war credit for the year 1941–42 will be sent to each taxpayer as soon as possible after the amount of the credit has been ascertained. It will be appreciated, however, that in the case of income from employments payment of the tax itself is not completed until a considerable time after the end of the year of assessment. In the meantime an explanatory leaflet is being issued with every notice of assessment which will enable the taxpayer to make a rough calculation of the amount of the credit which will become due to him.

Will the right hon. Gentleman consider making a broadcast or having a broadcast made at an early date to explain this matter, because there is much scepticism among workers that this is a promise which will never be fulfilled?

Yes, Sir. I will certainly consider that.
