asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury the number of Income Tax payers with an income of £500 and over during each of the last. 20 years?
The only statistics available for recent years regarding the distribution of incomes are those relating to Sur-tax payers. My hon. Friend will find in Table 64 of the 63rd report of the Commissioners of Inland Revenue (Command Paper No. 1083) and in Table 67 of the 64th report (Command Paper No. 1436) particulars of the distribution of incomes for the years 1918–19 and 1919–20 which give the information he desires for those two years.
