HC Deb 26 March 1959 vol 602 c149W
11. Mr. Chapman

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he is aware that a man discharged or ill in the initial weeks of the Income Tax year suffers hardship compared with a man discharged later in the year because he has no lump sum tax refund to help tide him over the immediate period; and whether he will consider the arrangement which would allow an overlapping period of the two financial years so as to assist men on Pay As You Earn in this matter.

Mr. Simon

I am aware of the position to which the hon. Member refers, but I cannot at this time of the year comment on this suggestion.
