HC Deb 04 December 1981 vol 14 c236W
Mr. Christopher Price

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer by what date he estimates the Inland Revenue's new computer could run a local income tax.

Mr. Ridley

Some time after 1987, depending on the precise form of the local income tax, and the progress which has been made with the PAYE computerisation programme at the time the decision to introduce a local income tax was taken.
