§ Mr. Wakeham
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs how many days he spent outside the United Kingdom during the first half of the 1977–78 from 6th April 1977 to 30th September 1977 in the pursuit of his duties as Secretary of State as defined for tax relief on overseas employment earnings in the Finance Act 1977, and what is his estimate of the days he will spend outside the United Kingdom on a similar basis for the second half of the 1977–78 tax year.
§ Mr. Tomlinson
None. Like all Crown servants, Ministers of the Crown are excluded from the benefit of the tax relief on overseas earnings available under Schedule 7 to the Finance Act 1977.
