asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer the amount not recovered from Income Tax and Supertax for the latest available year and for the average of the last five years; and what percentage does this bear to the taxes as a whole.

I would refer my hon. Friend to the Annual Appropriation Accounts, which contain all the available information regarding the extent to which taxation has proved to be irrecoverable. Particulars of the amount of Income Tax and Surtax passed as irrecoverable in the years he mentions are to be found in the Appropriation Accounts for the last five years, published as House of Commons Papers 14 of 1945, 15 of 1944, 26 of 1943, 16 of 1942 and 15 of 1941.
