INDEPENDENT 1 SCHOOLS : NO TAX RELIEF

In the House of Commons on Tuesday last Mr. Christopher Hollis (Con., Devizes) sought to introduce a new clause into the Finance Bill to entitle a parent with a child at an independent school to an incometax allowance of £25.

Mr. Hollis argued that independent schools performed a function of importance to the whole community, and where the cost was borne by the taxpayer he should be entitled to relief.

The clause was negatived by 280 votes to 112.
