HC Deb 13 February 1981 vol 998 c442W
Miss Richardson

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer when the consultation period on the Green Paper "The Taxation of Husband and Wife" will end.

Mr. Peter

Rees: No closing date has been set for representations, as we think it desirable to give as long as possible for views to be formed and presented on the important issues raised by the Green Paper. But we should find it helpful if those who wish to comment could make their views known by, say, the end of October this year.
