Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Clause 1. — (Charge of Income Tax for 1965–66.) (30 Nov 1964)

Mr Edward Leadbitter: If the hon. Member opposite who made that suggestion were to come to The Hartlepools or constituencies in the North-East, Merseyside and Scotland he would find that the average wage is about £12 a week and nothing like the £17 a week suggested by the Leader of the Opposition.
