HC Deb 17 December 1965 vol 722 cc343-4W
Mr. Ian Lloyd

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he will publish frequency distributions of the latest available figures for gross and net incomes before and after tax of taxpayers resident in the greater Portsmouth area, Southampton and Hampshire, respectively.

Mr. MacDermot

There are no figures available of frequency distributions of incomes before or after tax for individuals resident in the greater Portsmouth area or in Southampton. The latest figures available for ranges of income before tax for Hampshire relate to 1959–60 and were published in Table 136 of the 105th Report of the Board of Inland Revenue; the basis of the classification by counties in this table is the place of main assessment of each individual, generally the place of business or employment, and not the place of residence.

No figures are available by counties for ranges of income after tax.
