§ Mr. Grylls
asked the Secretary of State for Industry when he expects to receive the new Edwardes corporate plan for British Leyland; and, when he receives it, if he will undertake to publish it as a Command Paper or place a copy in the Library.810W
benefits shown are those introduced in November 1976 which were then in operation. Tax has been calculated on the basis of the full allowances for the current year—that is, £1,455 for a married couple, £196 for the first child and £170 for each other child, and the resultant weekly tax threshold is £35.02. The figures shown would be affected during the first six months of the tax year by (i) the increase in the value of free school welfare milk to 81p per week and (ii) the increase in the value of free school meals to £1.25 from September. In addition, all the unemployed men shown in the table would have been entitled to free school meals for the child of school age from the start of the autumn term.
§ Mr. Les Huckfield
I refer the hon. Member to the answer my right hon. Friend gave to my hon. Friend the Member for Birmingham, Ladywood (Mr. Sever) on 10th January-[Vol. 941, c. 709–10.]
When my right hon. Friend has considered the NEB report, he will make appropriate arrangements to inform the House, but I expect that the plan will contain too much commercially confidential information to permit publication.
