HC Deb 26 January 1971 vol 810 c60W
34. Mr. Hugh Jenkins

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what estimate he has made of the benefit to be derived from increased incentives and productivity by the top income earners as a result of his changes in income tax; and if he will seek in his next Budget to make similar benefits available to the lower income groups.

Mr. Maurice Macmillan

I cannot anticipate my right hon. Friend's Budget; but I have no doubt that reducing the rates of personal taxation makes a significant contribution to a more dynamic economy.
