Abolition Of The Ten Pence Tax Rate (No. 2)

EDM number 1340 in 2007-08, proposed by Peter Bottomley on 21/04/2008.
Categorised under the topics of Incomes and poverty and Taxation.

That this House notes that, despite assurances to the contrary, many people are being made worse off by the abolition of the 10 pence tax rate; notes with concern that this is having a disproportionate impact on people who can ill afford to be made worse off; accepts that this was not the intention of the Government but is dismayed at the response to the plight of those adversely affected; and calls on the Chancellor of the Exchequer to bring forward measures to correct this damaging change to the taxation system.

This motion has been signed by a total of 24 MPs.
