Social Security Contributions (Transfer of Functions, Etc.) Bill [Lords] — 8 Feb 1999

Mr Paul Marsden MP, Shrewsbury and Atcham voted with the majority (No).

Order for Second Reading read.

I beg to move, To leave out from "That" to the end of the Question, and to add instead thereof:

"this House declines to give the Social Security Contributions (Transfer of Functions, etc.) Bill [Lords] a Second Reading because the effect of the Bill will be to facilitate the ending of the contributory principle, leading to the wider application of the means test, which will have a detrimental effect on the public and particularly pensioners; and because the major practical difficulties in transferring functions relating to social security contributions to the Treasury have not been overcome."

Question put, That the amendment be made:--

The House divided: Ayes 132, Noes 322.
