HC Deb 05 March 1997 vol 291 c614W
Dr. Wright

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer what percentage to total Government revenue is accounted for by income tax. [18145]

Mr. Jack

Income tax accounted for 25¼ per cent. of all general Government receipts in 1995–96. The Budget forecast this percentage falling to 24 per cent. in 1997–98, reflecting the 1995 and 1996 Budget reductions in income tax.
