HC Deb 10 November 1977 vol 938 cc189-90W
Mr. Ovenden

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what is the net gain for a widow with one, two, three and four children, respectively, subject to the standard rate of income tax resulting from the proposed child benefit increases in April 1978 and the corresponding changes in taxation of dependency allowances which he announced on 26th October; and how this compares with the net gain for a married couple with one child also paying the standard rate of tax.

Mr. Robert Sheldon:

I will let my hon. Friend have a reply as soon as possible.
