HC Deb 17 October 1975 vol 897 c831W
Mr. Ralph Howell

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what would be the notional income to the Exchequer, at 1975–76 tax rates and at levels of benefit operative from November 1975, if supplementary benefit—including allowances for rent and rates—were taxable.

Mr. Robert Sheldon

Information on which to base an estimate of the yield to the Revenue from making supplementary benefits taxable is not available.
