HC Deb 26 April 1990 vol 171 c312W
Mr. Harry Ewing

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer what was the overall tax burden, including all direct and indirect taxes and treating child benefit as negative income tax, for a one-earner family on average earnings in 1989–90 with two children; and what he estimates it will be in 1990–91.

Mr. Lilley

About one third of gross earnings in direct and indirect taxes and employee national insurance contributions in 1989–90, and about the same in 1990–91.
