HC Deb 24 February 1992 vol 204 cc367-8W
Mr. Battle

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer what proportion of people receiving mortgage tax relief are first-time buyers.

Mr Maude

[holding answer 21 February 1992]: Information on the proportion of all those receiving mortgage tax relief who were first-time buyers when the mortgage was taken out is not available. Almost 50 per cent. of those mortgages taken out in the year ending September 1991 were for first-time buyers.
