HC Deb 15 July 1941 vol 373 c454
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.
