Mr. Willetts

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer how many families received the children's tax credit in 2001–02, broken down into those that received(a) under £100, (b) £101 to £200, (c) £201 to £300, (d) £301 to £400, (e) £401 to £500 and (f) over £500; and in what form it was collected in each case. [91971]

Dawn Primarolo

I regret that the breakdown requested is not available. For the number receiving the Children's Tax Credit (ChTC) for 2001–02 via PAYE code adjustments, and for the number of these for which the adjustment was reduced because the claimant was a higher rate, I refer the hon. Member to my answer to him on 17 April 2002,Official Report, column 971W.

Estimates of the values of the 2001–02 ChTC to all taxpayers, including those claiming via self assessment, will become available from the Survey of Personal Incomes towards the end of this year.
