asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer on what scale is Income Tax deducted from the pay of prisoners of war; and how the practice of H.M. Government compares with that of Dominion Governments in this matter.

The service pay of prisoners of war is liable to United Kingdom Income Tax in the same way as the pay of any member of the Forces serving abroad.
