HC Deb 15 November 1961 vol 649 cc71-2W
Sir Richard Glyn

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what proportion of incomes before tax, for the latest convenient 12-month period, totalled under £400 per annum and under £600 per annum, respectively.

Mr. Barber

On the basis of the estimated numbers of incomes published in the National Income Blue Book 1961 the figures for the calendar year 1960 are about 30 per cent. and 50 per cent. respectively. The combined incomes of a married couple are counted as one unit.
