§ 56. Miss Eleanor Rathbone
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what is the estimated value of rebates on Income Tax claimable in respect of dependent children in the current year; and what was the actual value of such rebates last year?
§ Sir K. Wood
It is not possible to quote actual figures for the past year, but it is estimated that the cost of the allowances for children will be about £50,000,000. The estimate for the current year is about £80,000,000.
