§ 57. Mr. Woodburn
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he will assure those intending to be married before the end of the financial year that their rights to repayments of Income Tax, 119W on account of their marriage, will not be affected by his earlier presentation of the Budget.
§ Mr. R. A. Butler
The higher personal allowance for married persons for the Income Tax year of assessment 1951–52 has already been prescribed by the Finance Act, 1951, and applies to persons married on or before 5th April next. It will not be affected by the early date on which the Budget proposals for the following year will be presented.
