Impact Of The Abolition Of The 10 Per Cent. Tax Band On Pensioners Aged 60 To 64 Years

EDM number 1075 in 2007-08, proposed by David Chaytor on 27/02/2008.
Categorised under the topics of Equality, Incomes and poverty, Pensions and Taxation.

That this House expresses its concern that the aboliton of the 10 per cent. tax band introduced in the 2007 Budget will have a detrimental impact on a number of low income groups, particularly pensioners aged between 60 and 64 years; notes that those who have retired on medical grounds under 60 years will suffer disproportionately as they will only have accrued small pensions; further notes that women are disproportionately affected by these changes and that 0.6 million women aged between 60 and 64 years will see their income decreased by £1.95 a week on average; and calls on the Government to take the needs of this small, low-income group into account in the forthcoming Budget.

This motion has been signed by a total of 87 MPs, 2 of these signatures have been withdrawn.
