Income Tax: Thornbury and Yate

Question for Treasury

UIN 132527, tabled on 14 March 2018

To ask Mr Chancellor of the Exchequer, how many people in the Thornbury and Yate constituency his Department estimates will benefit from the rise in tax free personal allowance during the 2018-2019 financial year.

Answered on

19 March 2018

Since the start of the 2015 Parliament, increases to the personal allowance (up to £11,850 in 2018-19) are expected to cut income tax for 2.8 million individuals in the South West, which includes Gloucestershire and the Parliamentary Constituency of Thornbury and Yate.

These estimates are based on the 2014-15 Survey of Personal Incomes, projected using economic assumptions consistent with the Office for Budget Responsibility’s November 2017 Economic and Fiscal Outlook.

HM Treasury does not publish this information at constituency level or unitary authority level.
