HC Deb 15 February 1973 vol 850 c427W
Sir B. Rhys Williams

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if, in his Budget, he will extend the system of family allowances to provide £1 per week tax-free for all children including the first, payable, as now, normally to the mothers, plus a further positive tax-free parents' allowance of £1 payable either to the fathers or at the parents' option; and if he will simplify the tax system by ending the existing negative child allowances.

Mr. Nott

I have noted my hon. Friend's suggestion.
