HC Deb 25 November 1952 vol 508 c30W
75. Brigadier Clarke

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if, for the purpose of tax collection, he will consider widows receiving a 10s. a week non-contributory pension as married women, and thus allow them to receive the additional Income Tax benefit.

Mr. R. A. Butler

I am afraid that I could not agree that the widows to whom my hon. and gallant Friend refers should be given special Income Tax relief exceeding that due to a single person.
