HC Deb 08 May 1989 vol 152 c315W
Mr. Nicholas Brown

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will give the percentage and number of(a) basic rate taxpayers and (b) higher rate taxpayers participating in charity payroll giving in 1988–89.

Mr. Norman Lamont

It is estimated that over 120,000 people were participating in the scheme at the end of 1988–89, but I regret that information on their marginal rate of tax is not available.
