§ 16. Mr. Richard Wainwright
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether, in order to encourage voluntary public service, he will introduce relief from income tax on other earned income in respect of expenses legitimately and necessarily incurred in performing unpaid public service.
§ Mr. Joel Barnett
No. I could not justify a departure from the normal rule that expenses not directly connected with earning income are not deductible for tax purposes.
