HC Deb 21 November 1939 vol 353 cc1040-1W
Miss Rathbone

asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury what was the cost to the Treasury for the last financial year of the rebate on Income Tax granted in respect of dependent children; how many taxpayers profited by this form of rebate; and what was the total number of children in respect of whom rebates were allowed?

Captain Crookshank

I regret I am unable to give the total cost of the child allowance, or of the numbers of the taxpayers and children in question.
