Finance Bill — Clause 1 — Report on Impact of Raising Tax Rate Applied to Income over £150,000 from 45% to 50%. — 8 Apr 2014 at 17:42

Julian Huppert MP, Cambridge voted against requiring a report on the impact of raising the rate of tax applied to income over £150,000 from 45% to 50%.

The majority of MPs voted against requiring a report on increasing the additional rate of income tax to 50%. At the time of the vote the additional rate was 45% and applied to income over £150,000[1]

MPs were considering the Finance Bill.[2] The amendment rejected in this vote was:

  • Amendment 4, page 2, line 11, at end insert—
  • ‘( ) The Chancellor of the Exchequer shall, within three months of the passing of this Act, publish a report on the impact of setting the additional rate of income tax at 50 per cent.
  • ( ) The report must estimate the impact of setting the additional rate for 2014-15 at 45 per cent and at 50 per cent on the amount of income tax currently paid by someone with a taxable income of—
  • (a) £150,000 per year; and
  • (b) £1,000,000 per year.

This would have added the above new subclauses to clause 1 of the Bill[3].
