HC Deb 27 March 1968 vol 761 cc286-7W
Sir B. Rhys Williams

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer taking into account the effect of the changes in the rates of child allowances proposed in the Budget, what additional yield of Income Tax and Surtax will be obtained in the next full financial year on the basis that the child allowances are withdrawn altogether.

Mr. Harold Lever

My right hon. Friend has not proposed a change in the rates of child allowance but a reduction in the total personal allowances of individuals where a child or children rank for family allowance for 1968–69. The estimated yield from abolishing child allowances is £675 million for a full year.
