asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what have been the total contributions to, and receipts from, each EEC fund in each year of United Kingdom membership; and what are the intended contributions and receipts for future years.
The United Kingdom's contributions to, and receipts from, the Community budget since 1973 are as follows:
|Gross contribution||Receipts||Net contribution|
pursuant to his reply [Offical Report, 3rd March 1977; Vol. 927, c. 319], gave the following information:I assume the hon. Member is referring to tax on income from self-employment. Income tax is, however, a tax on the total income of a taxpayer, irrespective of its source. Hence, if a self-employed individual receives some employment income or investment income in addition to his self-employment income, the allocation of taxes by type of income can only be made arbitrarily. With that reservation the figures of income tax charged under Schedule D on trading profits and professioning earnings for the last six years for which figures are available are as follows:
|Year of earnings||Tax charged £million|
