HC Deb 28 April 1964 vol 694 c33W
35. Mr. A. Lewis

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he will take action to end the present practice whereby lawyers are able to claim the last year of their earnings tax-free or to extend this privilege to all tax-payers.

Mr. Green

The treatment of barristers' fees for tax purposes is in accordance with the existing law and my right hon. Friend's Budget proposals did not include any proposal to amend the law in this matter.
