HC Deb 20 February 1945 vol 408 c627
60. Major Conant

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he is aware of the great distress caused to people whose sole means of livelihood is a small fixed income by the high cost of living and the present high rates of taxation; and whether in framing his next Budget he will consider increasing the allowances available in such cases.

Sir J. Anderson

My hon. Friend will appreciate that I cannot anticipate my Budget Statement.
