Travel And Subsistence Claims

EDM number 790 in 2015-16, proposed by Alan Meale on 30/11/2015.
Categorised under the topics of Employment, Pay and Taxation.

That this House is aware that the Government has chosen to remove the tax relief mechanism Travel and Subsistence from contractors from April 2016, a decision which is likely to result in around 1.6 million workers experiencing up to a 20 per cent wage cut to their net salaries overnight; understands the importance of workers in this sector who currently fill the skills shortages around the country and in industries as hospitals, schools and colleges and local authorities as well as many major public civil engineering projects; and believes that if the Government persists in such a short-sighted fiscal strategy it will result in undoubted delays and huge failures to essential services provided to citizens.

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