§ Mr. Nigel Jones
To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer how much the Government will save from the reduction in the tax allowance on widow's bereavement allowance.
§ Mr. Dorrell
At 1994–95 income levels, the full-year yield from restricting the widows' bereavement allowance to 20 per cent. is about £6 million. Restricting this allowance to 15 per cent. as announced for 1995–96, would yield an estimated further £9 million.
