§ 117. Mr. Meacher
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment by how much, for a married worker with three children aged three, seven and 12 years, the income ceiling has been increased for eligibility for rate rebates since these were introduced; what were the dates of each increase; and what were the 108W new income levels established on each occasion.
§ Mr. Graham Page
For a married couple with three children the income limit governing eligibility for full rebate was £14.50 in 1966, was increased to £17.00 from 1st October, 1968 and again, to £18.25, from 1st October, 1970. Some rebate may still be payable when income slightly exceeds this figure, depending on the size of the rate bill.
