MR. BRIGHT ON THE INCOME TAX. A deputation from the Birmingham Anti-Income Tax Association had an interview yesterday with the Chancellor of the Exchequer, to represent their views. Mr. Bright was invited with the other borough members to join the deputation, and in reply he has sent the following letter to the honorary secretary to the move- ment ;— Rochdale, March 4, 1872. Dear Sir,-I regret to say that I shall not be able to be in town on Wednesday, and therefore I cannot take part in the proposed deputation to the Chancellor of the Exchequer. There is little real difference of opinion as to the odious and unfair character of the income tax but it is not easy to see where the money is to be obtained which now comes from that tax. I see no chance of its abolition except in lessened expenditure, and at present there seems no probability of the creation of a political party resolved to lessen the expenditure, and adopting that policy as the one great article of its creed. I do not believe in Governments that cannot govern without taking seventy millions every year from the industry of the nation, and I hope the time will come when no such Government will be permitted to exist. For myself, I should be ready to vote for such reduction of expenditure as would enable the Chancellor of the Exchequer to re- move the income tax or to abolish the taxes which add so greatly to the price of tea, coffee, and sugar.—I am, truly ^°TO'G. W. Plant, Esq. •*>„„ B™
