Taxation: Pensioners

Volume 464: debated on Wednesday 10 October 2007

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer what assessment he has made of the likely impact of the tax changes announced in the 2007 budget due to be implemented in 2008 on a woman pensioner aged between 60 and 65; and if he will make a statement. (156453)

Tax changes announced in Budget 2007 were part of a package of reforms to support work, families and pensioners. The exact impact of the reforms on individuals including women pensioners aged between 60 and 64 will depend both on their own incomes, and also the circumstances of the household in which they live, for example the income and age of any partner, and family eligibility for tax credits and benefits.
