HC Deb 06 November 1962 vol 666 c41W
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.
