HC Deb 24 February 1977 vol 926 c695W
Sir John Hall

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what has been the percentage increase in wages, salaries, prices and total income from dividends and incomes taxed at source, over 10 years ending with the last year for which all these figures are available.

Mr. Denzil Davies

Between the financial years 1964–65 and 1974–75 wages and salaries increased by 174 per cent.; the general index of retail prices rose by 102 per cent.; and investment income of individuals taxed at source—including building society interest—is estimated to have risen by 87 per cent. Both wages and salaries and investment income are measured gross of tax.
