asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer (1) if he has received any pre-Budget submissions which advocate an increase in personal taxation by not raising the allowances in line with inflation;(2) if he will update the answer given to the hon. Member for Birmingham, Perry Barr,
Official Report, 28 January, columns 511–12, in respect of personal tax allowances based on the February retail price index and incorporate any rounding needed for the operation of the PAYE scheme.
I shall let the hon. Member have a reply as soon as possible.
