HC Deb 27 January 1983 vol 35 cc514-5W
26. Mr. Wigley

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer how many representations he has received asking Her Majesty's Government to change personal allowances in order to ensure that pensioners with small supplementary incomes are taken out of tax.

Mr. Wakeham

Many letters from pensioners ask that personal allowances should be increased, but relatively few are directed at the particular point the hon. Gentleman refers to.
