HC Deb 27 May 1976 vol 912 c322W
Mr. Kenneth Clarke

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether the cost of child benefit after April 1977 will appear in the Government's statistics on total public expenditure after deduction of any saving as child tax allowances or not.

Mr. Joel Barnett

As the Member will be aware, it is not now intended that there should be any change in child tax allowances as part of the introduction of the child benefit scheme.
