To ask Mr Chancellor of the Exchequer, how many people are estimated to benefit from the rise in the tax free personal allowance during the 2017-2018 financial year in Thornbury and Yate constituency.
21 March 2018
Since the start of the 2015 Parliament, increases to the personal allowance (up to £11,500 in 2017-18) are expected to cut income tax for 2.7 million individuals in the South West, which includes Gloucestershire and the Parliamentary Constituency of Thornbury and Yate.
These estimates are based on the 2013-14 Survey of Personal Incomes, projected using economic assumptions consistent with the Office for Budget Responsibility’s March 2016 Economic and Fiscal Outlook.
