§ 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.
