  • (b) subject to the provisions of any Act of the present Session relating to War Damage or Superannuation, and to any enactment which has effect only after the end of the year 1948–49, all such enactments as had effect with respect to the income tax charged for that year, other than enactments which by their terms relate only to tax for that year, shall have effect with respect to the income tax charged for the year 1949–50.
