HC Deb 02 March 1981 vol 1000 c9W
Mr. Bendall

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will calculate what rebate of tax a man earning the average wage of miners would receive if he were out of work for the last month of the current financial year.

Mr. Peter Rees

[pursuant to his reply, 20 February 1981, c. 241]: In 1980–81 a married taxpayer liable to tax at the basic rate would receive a tax refund of £49.80 if he received no taxable income for four weeks. A monthly paid worker would receive a tax refund of £5370 for the last calendar month of the year.
