§ Miss Richardson
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what proportion of (a) single people without dependants and (b) people with dependants involved in a trade dispute received tax rebates during the dispute during the latest period for which information is available; and what was the average size of the rebate in each case.
§ Mr. Peter Rees
I regret that this information is not available. The refunds in question are usually paid by employers and no central record of them is kept.
