HC Deb 04 December 1967 vol 755 c208W
13. Mrs. Renée Short

asked the Minister of Social Security what estimated savings would be made if family allowances were paid only to those families where the Income Tax return shows an income of up to and including £2,000 per annum.

Mrs. Hart

At current rates of family allowances and tax, about £8 million a year. But the administrative machinery for doing this does not exist at present.
