HC Deb 15 November 1979 vol 973 cc755-6W
Mr. Burden

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what was the total amount of loans issued in the United

purposes; and what would be the equivalent figure at 1979 prices.

Mr. Peter Rees

In its existing form, the concession under which the first 15p of luncheon vouchers are tax free dates from 1959. Its current equivalent as measured by increases in the retail price index would be about 71p.
