HC Deb 28 July 1967 vol 751 cc333-4W
Mrs. Lena Jeger

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer, what allowance for Income Tax purposes is made to a working wife in respect of her maintenance of an unemployed husband living apart; and what is the allowance for a working husband in respect of his maintenance of an unemployed wife living apart.

Mr. MacDermot

Whether an allowance is due, and, if so, what, depends on the facts of the particular case. If my hon. Friend has a particular case in mind and will let me know the facts I will look into it and write to her.
