HC Deb 06 August 1976 vol 916 c1075W
Mr. Hugh Jenkins

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what action he has taken to deal with the situation revealed by 1974 figures that the low income household paid 15 per cent. of its income in indirect taxes compared with only 121 per cent. paid by the high income household.

Mr. Robert Sheldon

I regret that in the time available it has not proved possible to collate the information requested and I will write to my hon. Friend.
