HC Deb 17 July 1986 vol 101 c584W
Sir Brandon Rhys Williams

asked the Prime Minister, pursuant to her reply to the hon. Member for Kensington on 3 June, Official Report. column 433, what would be the additional costs in terms of revenue forgone if, instead of making all income other than the credits taxable, each individual, counting husbands and wives separately, were allowed a non-transferable low income tax exemption, similar to age allowance, of (a) £15, (b) £20 and (c) £25 per week.

The Prime Minister

I shall reply to my hon. Friend shortly.
