HC Deb 03 August 1943 vol 391 c2083
52. Mr. Craven-Ellis

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he is aware that old age pensioners, who have returned to employment to help in the war effort, feel that their pension, to which they have a statutory right through the contributory scheme, should not be brought into their total income for tax assessment; and whether he will give instructions accordingly?

The Chancellor of the Exchequer (Sir Kingsley Wood)

I would refer my hon. Friend to the answer I gave to my hon. Friend the Member for Huntingdonshire (Dr. Peters) on 8th July.
