HC Deb 14 May 1981 vol 4 c316W
21. Mr. Arthur Lewis

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if, in view of the fact that the £44 a day tax-free attendance allowance now paid to Members of the House of Lords is worth to most of these Members £110 a day on a taxed basis, he will, in support of the Government's policy of reducing public expenditure, arrange for these payments to be made on (a) a taxed basis or (b) a means-tested basis similar to that adopted for social security benefits.

Mr. Peter Rees
