HC Deb 17 February 1948 vol 447 c992
61. Colonel Wheatley

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will consider granting Income Tax relief to limbless men not in receipt of pensions, who have to bear the cost of supply and maintenance of limbs and accessories, including stump socks.

Sir S. Cripps

The hon. and gallant Member will not expect me to anticipate my Budget statement.

Colonel Wheatley

Although I do not expect the Chancellor to divulge the secrets of his Budget, will he consider the point I have made on behalf of these unfortunate people?

Sir S. Cripps

I will certainly consider it.
