Opposition Day — Bankers Bonus Tax — Impact of Disability Benefit Changes — 28 Nov 2012 at 18:50
The majority of MPs voted against introducing a bank bonus tax to fund jobs for young people and against an impact assessment of disability benefit changes.
The following motion was rejected in this vote:
- That this House
- notes that only just over two in every hundred people referred to the Work Programme in its first year have gone into work;
- further notes that it has delivered a worse outcome than no programme at all;
- recognises that long term unemployment is soaring and that the welfare bill is projected to be £20 billion higher than planned;
- notes with concern that the Government is cutting £14 billion from tax credits and is taking £6.7 billion from disability benefits to pay for this cost of failures; and
- calls on the Government to implement a bank bonus tax to fund a Real Jobs Guarantee for young people and commission a cumulative impact assessment of disability benefit changes.
