Mr. J. Doyle Mr. J. Doyle
347. Mr. J. Doyle asked the Minister for Finance the amount of revenue raised under section 8 of the Finance Act, 1982 in the year ended 31 December 1983 under the headings (a) tax raised on preferential house loans and (b) tax raised on other loans.
Minister for Finance (Mr. Dukes) Alan Dukes
Minister for Finance (Mr. Dukes): Statistics are not available which would enable the precise information requested by the Deputy to be given. To obtain the information sought would require the identification of cases involved and an individual examination of all the income tax returns of such cases. Such an examination could only be carried out at a disproportionate cost. However, it is tentatively estimated that the net yield to the Exchequer for the year in question in respect of all preferential loans is of the order of £0.5 million.
