HC Deb 28 January 1980 vol 977 cc511-2W
Mr. Thomas Cox

asked the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster whether shelter provision is to be provided for security officers who search motor vehicles entering the courtyard of the Palace of Westminster; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. St. John-Stevas

I will write to the hon. Gentleman on this matter.

Inland Revenue statistics do not distinguish taxpayers who are ratepayers, but a house holder's tax allowance of £500 might reduce the yields shown above by about £2,500-£3,000 million.
