HC Deb 26 March 1964 vol 692 c160W
52. Dame Irene Ward

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he has carried out the special review promised in May 1960 to the hon. Member for Tynemouth on the anomalies arising from special Income Tax allowances; and whether he will announce his findings in his Budget.

Mr. Boyd-Carpenter

My right hon. Friend reviewed the whole personal allowances system before the 1963 Budget, when he introduced a reform under which the former first reduced rate band of £60 was absorbed into a larger personal allowance, with further improvements in personal allowances for married men and in the allowances for dependent children.
