HC Deb 26 November 1973 vol 865 cc73-4W
Mr. Meacher

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if he will set out the calculations by which he estimates that the tax credits scheme will remove from the poverty trap three-quarters of those potentially liable to it.

Mr. Dean

The information required may be found in the memorandum "Means Tested Benefits—Marginal Net Incomes" reproduced in the Report of the Select Committee on Tax Credit (HC 341 of 1972–73, Vol. II, pages 426–429) as supplemented by Appendix 19 to Vol. III, pages 38–41.
