asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer the average income of all Surtax payers for the latest financial year for which figures are available.
My hon. Friend will find information about the numbers and total income of Surtax payers in recent years in the 94th Report of the Commissioners of Inland Revenue at pages 134 to 140. The latest year for which information is available is 1949–50. The estimated final figures for that year give £4,064 as the average total income of Surtax payers.
