§ Mr. George Cunningham
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer why the Financial Secretary has not yet replied to a letter dated 16 November 1981 from the hon. Member for Islington, South and Finsbury concerning grossing up for tax purposes of education allowances paid to Armed Services officers.
§ Mr. Ridley
I am very sorry for the delay which has occurred. I have now written to the hon. Member.
