HC Deb 08 November 1966 vol 735 cc258-9W
Mr. Arthur Lewis

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer why, in view of his restrictions on overseas travel allowance to £50 per annum, he is allowing £2,000 per annum for school fees to children attending schools and colleges in hard currency areas; and what economies he intends to make in these allowances.

Mr. MacDermot

The figure of £2,000 comes from a notice to banks dating back to November, 1960, and is being amended as part of the current travel restrictions.
