§ Mr. Sillars
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer (1) how many people in Great Britain are now estimated to have yearly incomes of £50,000 per annum and above;
(2) how many people in Great Britain are now estimated to have yearly incomes of £20,000 per annum and above.
§ Mr. Patrick Jenkin
I cannot give current estimates but for 1968–69, the latest year for which figures are available, it is estimated that there were about 6,840 people with a net income before tax of £20,000 or more and 520 with an income of £50,000 or more. These estimates count a married couple as one unit.152W
