HC Deb 13 November 1970 vol 806 c290W
Mr. Redmond

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether, in view of the rising cost of travel and the desirability of arranging for many workers to live outside the urban areas in which they work, he will consider, in connection with his next Budget, giving some allowance for tax purposes in respect of travel expenses to and from work.

Mr. Patrick Jenkin

No. I could not justify giving a tax allowance for this particular form of personal expenditure.
