HC Deb 09 February 1932 vol 261 cc657-8
55. Mrs. SHAW

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he will take steps to enable unmarried persons whose earnings are now assessed for Income Tax purposes to claim relief in respect of a relative whom they are now obliged to keep under the operation of the means test?


There is no provision in the Income Tax Acts which would enable a deduction to be made in respect of assistance afforded by relatives in the circumstances suggested.
