HC Deb 31 March 1993 vol 222 c230W
Mr. Rooker

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer what is his estimate of the numbers of additional income tax payers in 1993–94 as a result of freezing rates of personal allowances; and how much extra income tax will be raised as a result.

Mr. Dorrell

Compared with statutory indexation, the revenue yield from not changing personal allowances will be about £700 million in 1993–94, and about 300,000 more people will pay tax.
