HC Deb 08 February 1980 vol 978 c381W
Mr. Rooker

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will publish in tabular form his estimates of the number of people taken out of income tax by Budget changes in each of the past 10 years, and the total number of people who paid income tax in each of the same years, including a provisional estimate for the current year; if he will distinguish between earning wives and others; and if, for the years since 1967–77, he will show separate figures for changes due to section 22 of the Finance Act 1977.

Mr. Peter Rees

I shall let the hon. Member have a reply as soon as possible.
