HC Deb 19 March 1981 vol 1 c178W
Mr. George Cunningham

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what is his estimate of the increase in the number of taxpayers in 1981–81, arising from his decision not to propose any rise in personal tax allowances as compared with the position as it would be under section 22(2) of the Finance Act 1977.

Mr. Peter Rees

[pursuant to his reply, 13 March 1981, c. 428]: It is estimated that 1¼ million more people will pay tax in 1981–82 than if allowances had been increased in line with the statutory indexation provisions.
