HC Deb 05 August 1947 vol 441 cc133-4W
57. Sir J. Lucas

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he is aware that if the landlord is to maintain the condition of controlled houses the annual cost of repairs is often higher than the rental received; and if he will allow a larger percentage than at present to be set against Income Tax.

Mr. Dalton

I have promised to examine the scale of the Schedule A repairs allowance before next year's Finance Bill.
