§ Mr. Bowden
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will take steps to extend the age allowance to women aged between 60 and 65 years.
§ Mr. Robert Sheldon,
pursuant to his reply [Official Report, 6th March 1978], gave the following answer:
No. I think it is right that the special income tax reliefs for the elderly should begin at the same age for men and women.
