HC Deb 24 February 1966 vol 725 c152W
Mr. Hirst

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what would be the cost of extending the £40 allowance to a married man to meet the additional expense arising out of his wife's infirmity, where he is at present unable to claim because he has no young children and no daughter to help him.

Mr. MacDermot

The cost cannot be estimated but it would be small.
