HC Deb 17 May 1962 vol 659 c136W
Mr. John Hall

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what he estimates would be the gross value which an estate would need to reach today to yield the same purchasing power after payment of Estate Duty as was yielded in 1938 by estates valued at £5,000, £7,500, £50,000, £100,000, and £150,000, respectively.

Mr. Barber

About £16,000, £26,500, £370,000, £975,000 and £1,750,000 respectively.
