§ 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.
