PREFACE.

As one step onwards in quest of an equitable system of
taxation, it is hoped that this little work may justify its
publication, and that this slight contribution to the mass
of literature on the subject may provoke further efforts
to master the apparently insoluble problem of—“ how
to raise National Revenues with equity and justice."

Detailed criticisms on each tax and group of taxes in
our three tax systems appear in pages 13 to 124, as
shown in the Table of Contents and Index.

A broader review of the British Taxation as an entire
system is entered upon at page 134, and is also referred
to in the Introductory Chapter, where my reasons for
thinking that a thorough revision of our tax systems
is urgently needed, are given with sufficient brevity,
I trust.

THE AUTHOR.
