Poll Tax And Student Spouses

EDM number 1291 in 1989-90, proposed by Harry Barnes on 17/07/1990.

That this House is outraged by another unjust anomaly in the poll tax regulations that prevents a spouse whose sole income is child benefit from obtaining any poll tax rebate and being liable to a 100 per cent. payment if his or her own spouse is a registered student liable to pay 20 per cent. of their poll tax and is therefore unable to claim any normal rebate; and calls upon the Government to remove the offending regulations forthwith.

This motion has been signed by a total of 38 MPs.
