HC Deb 24 February 1992 vol 204 c366W
Mr. Richard Shepherd

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer what percentage of taxpayers earned over £55,000 a year gross in each of the past five tax years.

Mr. Maude

Estimates are readily available for both 1990–91 and 1991–92. About three quarters of 1 per cent. and just under 1 per cent. of taxpayers respectively are estimated to have gross earnings from employment and self-employment of over £55,000 in these years.
