14. Mr. O'Malley asked the Minister for Finance the total amount of tax actually collected to date under each of the following headings and the date in each case when such tax first came into force: (a) wealth tax (b) capital gains tax (c) gift tax (d) inheritance tax and (e) income tax on farming profits of full time bona fide farmers.

Mr. R. Ryan: As the reply is in the form of a tabular statement, I propose with the permission of the Ceann Comhairle, to have it circulated with the Official Report.

Following is the statement:
