HC Deb 15 February 1972 vol 831 c56W
23. Mr. Boyden

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what steps he is now taking to avoid the delays which are now occurring in the refund of Pay-As-You-Earn overpayments to unemployed men and women.

Mr. Higgins

In general there are few delays in making tax repayments to unemployed men and women. My hon. Friend the Financial Secretary has written to the hon. Member on a particular case he raised with me in which delay occurred.
