HC Deb 24 October 1972 vol 843 c209W
11. Mr. Ralph Howell

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer when he now expects to be able to publish the Green Paper on the proposed tax credit scheme.

Mr. Barber

The Green Paper was published on 10th October.

13. Dame Irene Ward

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer, in view of the fact that the new tax credit scheme is detrimental to some women's interests and has been adversely commented on by the Women's Commission, if he will undertake to meet a deputation representing women's interests before agreeing to legislation.

Mr. Patrick Jenkin

My right hon. Friend will be pleased to consider any representations which may be put to him about the proposals in the Green Paper.
