HC Deb 19 March 1982 vol 20 cc218-9W
Mr. Field

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if he will break down the number of mobility allowance claimants paying tax according to the marginal rate of the taxpayer.

Mr. Ridley

I have been asked to reply.

I regret that the detailed information on which to base the requested breakdown is not available centrally. However, it is thought that in 1981–82 the marginal rate of tax of the great majority of those taxpayers who receive mobility allowance is 30 per cent.
