HC Deb 10 July 1974 vol 876 c489W
Mr. Hannam

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer how much extra VAT, tobacco duty, alcohol duty and other "spending" taxes would be anticipated if the whole of additional pensioners' earnings were spent as they were earned.

Dr. Gilbert

I regret that the information on which to make an estimate of the indirect tax to be expected from additional pensioners' earnings resulting from the abolition of the pensioners' earnings rule is not available.
