HC Deb 15 May 1952 vol 500 cc135-6W
Miss Ward

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will set up a committee to consider what legislative or administrative action can be taken to help men and women with incomes above National Assistance level and below the scale assessable for Income Tax to meet the high cost of living.

Mr. Boyd-Carpenter

I regret that I cannot accept the suggestion of my hon. Friend.
