Scaling Of National Insurance Contributions

EDM number 1119 in 2012-13, proposed by George Galloway on 27/02/2013.
Categorised under the topics of Incomes and poverty and National insurance.

That this House believes that the scaling of national insurance (NI) contributions discriminates against middle-income families and lower earners; notes that people on incomes of between 7,592 and 42,484 per annum pay NI contributions of 12 per cent while, for those earning more, the rate on the excess falls to 2 per cent; further notes that again the poorer paid are subsidising the richer earners in society; and calls on the Government to end this discrimination by making high earners pay the same percentage contribution across their incomes as the lower paid already do.

This motion has been signed by a total of 2 MPs.
