HC Deb 25 June 1984 vol 62 c332W
Sir Brandon Rhys Williams

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will publish a table comparing income tax liability at weekly earnings or joint earnings of £150 and mortgage £15,000, £300 and mortgage £40,000, £450 and mortgage £60,000 and £750 and mortgage £60,000, for each of (a) two single people sharing accommodation, (b) two single people sharing accommodation each with one child, (c) a married couple and (d) a married couple with two children, assuming one and two earners in each case, and that where there are two earners each earns half the joint wage.

Mr. Moore

Information is in the following table, which assumes that mortgage interest is paid only by earners (at a rate of 10¼ per cent.) and that, in households where there are two single earners, the mortgage is equally split between them.
