§ 23. Mr. Frank Allaun
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what is the approximate tax relief granted to a house buyer taking out a £30,000 mortgage who is paying income tax at the highest rate; approximately how much tax allowance is granted annually to house buyers with mortgages on second homes and to those with mortgages over £13,000; and if he will now propose discontinuing tax relief on such mortgages.108W
§ Mr. Patrick Jenkin
On the first part of the hon. Member's Question, the amount of tax relief depends on the rate of interest paid and other matters. On the second part, this information is not available. On the third part, the answer is "No, Sir".
