asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether the unconditional 20 per cent. rebate of the Excess Profits Tax, announced in the Budget speech of 1942, applies to farmers as well as to industrialists; and whether arrangements have been made for farmers to get back 20 per cent. of everything they have paid in Excess Profits Tax as a direct cash rebate at the end of the war?
I would refer my hon. and gallant Friend to the replies given to my hon. Friend the Member for the Isle of Ely (Mr. de Rothschild) on 23rd September and 14th October.
