§ 17. Mr. Wigley
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer how close total taxation 639W revenue for the current year to date is to his Budget forecast.
§ Mr. Biffen
Total taxation receipts in the six months to 30 September were £27,309 million compared with a Budget forecast for the financial year as a whole of £61,780 million. In total, tax receipts of central Government are expected to be higher in the second half of the year than the first and the total for the year close to the Budget forecast.
