HC Deb 25 November 1958 vol 596 cc22-3W
66. Dame Irene Ward

asked the Secretary to the Treasury whether he will take steps to pay interest to pensioners in the same position as the constituent of the hon. Member for Tynemouth, whose name has been supplied to him, on money which has been collected over the years under Pay As You Earn for Income Tax in advance of liability.

Mr. Simon

I regret that there is no provision under which payment of interest could be authorised in the cases my hon. Friend has in mind. As my hon. Friend knows, new paying arrangements in these cases are being introduced next year.
