I may not be able to give the hon. Gentleman the figure. I shall do my best, and if I cannot give it to him this afternoon I will see that he gets it in due course. The fact remains that this is a concession. I do not want to encourage the hon. Gentleman in the insubstantial hope of his winning my vote at the next election. He should not criticise the Revenue for making what is a concession of convenience both to the Revenue and to people who pay the tax. The concession originated from a former Tory Chief Whip, and we at any rate are very grateful to him for this helpful suggestion.
