HC Deb 03 July 1978 vol 953 c58W
Mr. Tilley

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what is the average tax paid by working single parents of a child or children aged under five years; and what would be the cost to the Exchequer it each of these families were allowed to set an average of £500 a year extra as expenses to be deducted from taxable income.

Mr. Robert Sheldon

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