§ 16. Mr. Ridsdale
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer why Mr. Arnold, of 10 Ladysmith Avenue, Brightlingsea has been refused blind allowance on reaching the age of 70 years.
§ Mr. Harold Lever
Mr. Arnold has not been refused the blind person's allowance; his liability has been computed on the basis of the marginal age exemption relief which is more favourable to him than a computation on the basis of the normal tax allowances due to him.
§ Mr. Ridsdale
Is not the hon. Gentleman using words to deceive? Is it not a fact that the blind allowance is taken away on reaching the age of 70 in cases like this?
