HC Deb 18 March 1925 vol 181 cc2267-8
78. Mr. GROVES

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he is aware that a large number of clerks and shop assistants incur heavy expenses in fares, meals, and upkeep of status, and that they do not receive relief on Income Tax payable by them for the expenses referred to; and whether he will, therefore, consider the revision of abatements on such earned incomes up to £360 per annum to effect an allowance commensurate with such expenses?


The Chancellor of the Exchequer is unable in a matter of this kind to anticipate his Budget statement.
