Mr. Richard Wainwright

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what was the amount of relief given in respect of wife's earned income allowance against Income Tax and Surtax in the years 1965–66, 1966–67, and 1967–68.

Mr. Harold Lever

The estimates for Income Tax are as follows: £232 million for 1965–66, £238 million for 1966–67 and £250 million for 1967–68. The allowance does not apply for Surtax.
