HC Deb 13 February 1990 vol 167 cc121-2W
Mr. Ian Bruce

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer what assessment has been made of different levels of payroll tax on the costs of industry.

Mr. Lilley

A payroll tax levied as a percentage of total payroll would raise an estimated £1¼ billion for each 0.5 per cent. of the tax rate.
