HC Deb 23 February 1976 vol 906 c81W
Mr. Pardoe

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will estimate the net cost to public funds of abolishing the child allowance and replacing it with tax-free family allowances for all children including the first child equal to those provided by the ordinary scale of supplementary benefit.

Mr. Robert Sheldon

I will let the hon. Member have a reply as soon as possible.
