Taxation and Income

Volume 472: debated on Tuesday 4 March 2008

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer how many people in each parliamentary constituency in (a) Cornwall and (b) inner London declared an income of (i) between £5,645 and £16,505 and (ii) over £39,400 for tax purposes in the most recent 12 month period for which figures are available. (191535)

The number of individual income taxpayers by constituency can be found in table 3.15 "Income and tax by Parliamentary Constituency" on HM Revenue and Customs' website.

Estimates are based on the Survey of Personal Incomes, of which 2005-06 is the latest available.

A breakdown by level of income at constituency level is not readily available. Sample sizes at constituency level are small and estimates can demonstrate a large variability from year to year, therefore any inference from the information in table 3.15 should take into account the confidence intervals in table 3.15a "Income and tax by Parliamentary Constituency, Confidence Intervals".
