HC Deb 10 November 1980 vol 992 c43W
Mr. Arthur Lewis

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether, without divulging individual details, he will give for the latest most convenient financial year the number of peers of the realm who declared their income in the region of £5,000 per annum or more; and what would be the saving to the Exchequer if the £37 a day tax-free allowance were paid only to those below £5,000 per annum or that tax were paid at normal rates to all recipients with incomes of £5,000 per annum or more.

Sir Geoffrey Howe

I regret that the figures required to answer this question are not available centrally.
