Mr. Gibb

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer, pursuant to his answer of 22 January 1998,Official Report, column 644, what is his estimate of the revenue which would be raised from taxing child benefit, assuming household total incomes were assessed on the basis that the taxpayer is deemed to have received the child benefit.

[holding answer 30 January 1998]: The yield from taxing child benefit within the existing system of independent taxation would be around £1,450 million for 1998–99. The yield from taxing child benefit based on household total incomes would depend on the precise system of assessment.
