HC Deb 18 January 1994 vol 235 c523W
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.
