HC Deb 07 November 1966 vol 735 cc234-5W
Mr. Dean

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer how much he expects to be collected in Selective Employment Tax in the South-West during the first year of the tax; how much he expects to be paid back; and how these figures compare with those for Great Britain as a whole.

Mr. Diamond

During the first full year the tax is expected to yield £65 million in the South-West. Premium and refund payments for the same period are estimated at about £49 million. The estimated figures for Great Britain are £1,130 million and £910 million respectively. All these figures are approximations.
