Former MP, Birmingham, Ladywood
I agree with the point the hon. Gentleman is making, and in a recent letter to my right hon. Friend the Chancellor of the Exchequer I made the same point relating to one of my constituents. Would it not be more logical to meet this problem if the Liberal Party were to press my right hon. Friend to remedy the worst injustices of our tax system by deducting these essential travelling expenses...
I am very uneasy about what is happening here today, and I am all themore uneasy because I have no particular stircture either on the Government or on the Opposition parties, and no strong feeling either way about this tax. In the first place, I do not blame the Government for introducing it. Whatever may be urged by hon. Members, its introduction barely keeps pace with the rate of inflation...
That is a good point for me to conclude on. It is exactly that sort of opinion that worries me most.
