HC Deb 29 April 1965 vol 711 c85W
Mr. Blaker

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what he estimates would be the additional annual sum received by the Exchequer by way of income tax if the earnings rule for retirement pensioners were abolished.

Mr. MacDermot

About £½ million from the extra pensions that would be paid to those whose pensions are now reduced or extinguished under the earnings rule (excluding people over minimum pensionable age who have deferred their retirement).
