§ 41. Mr. Grimond
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will allow teachers a rebate of Income Tax for coal, oil or other heating used in their houses in connection with meetings, classes, etc.
§ Mr. Boyd-Carpenter
I am not certain what kind of meetings and classes the hon. Member has in mind. If he will send me particulars of any cases in which the point has arisen, I shall be happy to look into them.
§ Mr. Grimond
Is the right hon. Gentleman not aware that this is a problem in all rural areas where schoolmasters do a great deal of public work outside their routine teaching work and where they have to heat rooms for classes and meetings of committees, for instance? I will certainly send the right hon. Gentleman some particulars.
