HC Deb 14 October 1952 vol 505 c20
37. Mr. Hobson

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will revert to the practice of making provision on Income Tax assessment forms for stating details of trade union superannuation contributions, funeral benefits and tools for which tax allowance can be claimed and obtained.

Mr. R. A. Butler

The information given on Income Tax forms about these allowances has not been curtailed. If the hon. Member will write to me explaining in what way he considers the present arrangements unsatisfactory, I will have the matter looked into.

Mr. Hobson

Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that at the present time there is no space at all on the forms for inserting the superannuation contributions of trade union members?

Mr. Butler

I shall pay attention to the point which the hon. Member has raised. If he would like to elaborate it and see me, I should be only too glad to meet him.
