§ 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 334W 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.
