§ 36. Brigadier Clarke
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will give consideration to the abolition of Schedule A Tax as already promised by Her Majesty's Government.
§ Mr. Maudling
I am glad to repeat the undertaking given by my right hon. and learned Friend the Member for Wirral (Mr. Selwyn Lloyd) that provision for ending the charge to tax under Schedule A on owner-occupiers of residential property will be included in next year's Finance Bill. As my hon. Friend said, it will depend on revenue considerations whether this can be done in a single operation in one year.
