National Insurance (Contributions) Bill — New Clause 3 — Report on Youth Unemployement and Effect of Scrapping Employer's National Insurance Contributions for Employees Under 21 — 10 Dec 2013 at 15:15

The majority of MPs voted against requiring a review of the level of youth unemployment as at December 2013 and of the expected effect of abolishing employers' national insurance in respect of most employees aged under 21.

MPs were considering the National Insurance (Contributions) Bill[1]. The amendment rejected in this vote was:

  • Amendment to new clause 3: (a) at end insert—
  • ‘(13) The Treasury shall publish a review of the level of youth unemployment as at December 2013 and the effect on the level of youth unemployment if the amendments made in this section were required to be brought into force on 6 April 2014.’.

Proposed New Clause 3[2] titled Reduction of secondary Class 1 contributions for certain age groups which removed the requirement on employers to pay employers' national insurance contributions in relation to employees aged under 21 and earning under the Upper Earnings Limit which was forecast to be £42,285/year in 2015-16.
