§ Mr. Maxwell-Hyslop
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what is the maximum amount that a married woman 550W may earn per financial year without becoming liable (a) for income tax and (b) to pay separate national insurance contributions.
§ Mr. Robert Sheldon
A married woman does not pay tax if her income in the financial year is less than £625. National insurance flat-rate and graduated contributions become payable at incomes of £9 per week—£468 per year. A married woman may, however, opt not to pay flat-rate contributions.
