§ Mr. Alfred Morris
asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government if it is intended to increase the income limits for entitlement to rate rebates in the foreseeable future; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Denis Howell
My right hon. Friend proposes to lay before the House in due course a draft order under paragraph 14 of the 9th Schedule to the General Rate Act, 1967 to raise the income limit for a single person to £10 per week and that for a married couple to £12 5s. per week with effect from 1st October, 1970.
