HC Deb 23 January 1996 vol 270 c220W
Mr. Chris Smith

To ask the Secretary of State for Social Security what is his estimate of the effect on revenues in(a) 1996–97 and (b) 1997–98 of the increase from £10 to £20 in the disregard for voluntary and charitable payments. [8503]

Mr. Roger Evans

The increase in the disregard on charitable and voluntary payments is likely to be achieved at negligible cost.
