§ Mr. Ridley
Is not the right hon. Gentleman aware that I mentioned in the Question a constituent of mine with this income who has to pay £39 more a year? How does he think that the ordinary industrial worker would react if he were asked to pay £39 more a year in Income Tax from the average wage?
§ Mr. Diamond
I am anxious to serve the House, but I am Chief Secretary and not a juggler. There is no reference in the Question to income. The Question refers to buying a tractor worth £1,000.
