HC Deb 17 May 1966 vol 728 c203W
29. Mr. Driberg

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what is the annual cost to the revenue of the tax concession, in respect of travel to and from work, to persons evacuated from their homes in the last war: and what estimate he has made of the approximate cost of extending a similar relief to workers who, in the interest of mobility of labour, are required to travel considerable distances to work, and of the approximate cost of extending it to all employed persons.

Mr. Diamond

Under £¼ million for the present relief, and about £50 million for a general £10 relief for home-to-work travel. The cost of the limited relief envisaged by my hon. Friend cannot be estimated.
