HC Deb 08 May 1970 vol 801 c201W
Mr. Burnett

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what is his estimate of the number of people not now liable to pay income tax.

Mr. Taverne:

No precise estimate is possible; but the number of married men and single adults not liable to tax for 1970–71 is likely to be in the region of 8 million.
