HC Deb 11 March 1987 vol 112 cc209-10W
Mr. Ralph Howell

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will state the cost to the Exchequer if income tax thresholds were raised to £65 per week for a single person and £130 per week for a couple, married or otherwise.

further measures to improve the control of expenditure were still needed. The Council approved the resolution on the discharge of the 1985 budget.

Subject to United Kingdom and German parliamentary reserves, the Council agreed on a regulation to strengthen Community measures aided at detecting and combating fraud in Community trade with third countries.
