holding answer 9 September 2013

By April 2013, the cumulative effect of the Government's increases in the personal allowance for those aged under 65 years (born after 5 April 1948 since 2013-14 tax year) since 2010-11 had taken 2.4 million people out of the income tax system of which 2.0 million are in England.

These estimates are based on the 2010-11 Survey of Personal Incomes, projected to 2013-14 using economic assumptions consistent with the Office for Budget Responsibility's March 2013 economic and fiscal outlook.

Reliable estimates are not available at the parliamentary constituency or county level due to greater uncertainties in making projections for smaller geographical areas.
