§ 67. Mr. Leslie
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he will consider placing non-manual workers on the same basis as manual workers in relation to an allowance on Income Tax, where they have to spend a considerable sum in travelling expenses to and from their work?
§ Sir K. Wood
I would refer my hon. Friend to the reply I gave to the hon. Member for West Bromwich (Mr. Dugdale) on 10th February.
§ Mr. Leslie
Does not the right hon. Gentleman consider it anomalous for two men to be employed by the same firm, one in the office and the other in the workshop, one getting relief in this way which is denied to the other?
§ Mr. Rhys Davies
In considering his Budget proposals, will the right hon. Gentleman do nothing to discriminate against non-manual workers?
