HC Deb 19 November 1996 vol 285 c499W
Mr. MacShane

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer what would be the total cost in lost revenue of introducing a married person's tax allowance based on(a) £500 per married person, (b) £750 per married person and (c) £1,000 per married person. [3901]

Mr. Jack

The cost would depend on whether the proposed allowance replaced or was in addition to the existing married couple's allowance and whether it was available at marginal rates or at a fixed rate.
