HC Deb 23 March 1984 vol 56 c600W
Sir Brandon Rhys Williams

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what would be the cost of introducing a basic income guarantee scheme under the terms of which the sum of gains made by the gainers was in balance with the sum of the losses suffered by the losers through the introduction of the scheme; and where the main items of additional expense would be incurred.

Mr. Moore

I shall let my hon. Friend have a reply as soon as possible.
