HC Deb 29 March 1979 vol 965 cc346-7W
Mr. Scott

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he will seek to increase the value of the luncheon voucher concession from the present out-dated value to £1 per working day.

Mr. Robert Sheldon

I do not think that such an increase would be justified. To increase the value of the concession would be unfair to the millions of workers who have the benefit neither of luncheon vouchers nor of subsidised canteens.
