HC Deb 12 March 1996 vol 273 cc548-9W
Mr. Walden

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer what estimate he has made of the additional revenue which would accrue from taxing child benefit as income. [19346]

Mr. Jack

If child benefit were taxed, the yield for 1996–97 from taxing it as part of the father's or lone mother's income would be about £1,300 million. If it were taxed as part of the mother's or lone father's income, the yield would be about £700 million.
