§ 42. Captain Pilkington
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether, in order to encourage higher education wherever possible, he will take steps to relieve the burden of taxation on parents paying school fees.
I have noted my hon. and gallant Friend's suggestion, but I cannot anticipate my Budget statement.
§ Captain Pilkington

There was a very considerable increase in the Income Tax personal allowances made by my predecessor in the 1957 Budget.
§ Mr. Chetwynd
Are we to understand from the Chancellor's statement that he has gone into voluntary purdah rather earlier this year?
