§ 69. Mr. D. G. SOMERVILLE
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he will consider introducing into the Finance Bill proposals to relieve the clergy from the payment of Income Tax on voluntary Whitsuntide offerings of their congregations?
§ The FINANCIAL SECRETARY to the TREASURY (Mr. Pethick-Lawrence)
My right hon. Friend is not prepared to anticipate his Budget statement.
§ Mr. ALBERY
Will the hon. Gentleman bear in mind that such a change might well have a favourable influence on the revenue, as old motors consume more petrol?
§ Mr. PETHICK-LAWRENCE
The hon. Gentleman may rest assured that that point and all other relevant matters will be taken into consideration.
