National Insurance Contributions In The Construction Industry (No. 2)

EDM number 770 in 2009-10, proposed by Alan Meale on 01/02/2010.
Categorised under the topics of Construction industry and National insurance.

That this House is concerned about distortions and misinformation being circulated in opposition to HM Treasury plans to curb bogus self-employment in the construction industry; notes that the key change caused by such Government policy will be that construction companies will no longer be able to avoid paying their employers' national insurance contribution of 12.8 per cent. for their workers; is aware that currently there are an estimated 400,000 bogus self-employed workers operating in the UK construction industry, costing the Exchequer £1.7 billion per annum in lost revenue; congratulates the Union of Construction, Allied Trades and Technicians and other buildings trades unions for their sterling efforts to rid the industry of such illegal practices; and calls on the Government to enact fully the Treasury's proposals in the forthcoming budget to ensure that in future all construction workers currently considered self-employed would be in future deemed officially in receipt of employment income thereby protecting their rights and conditions.

This motion has been signed by a total of 51 MPs.
