The proposed new clause rejected in this vote was titled: Additional rate threshold and supplementary rate and stated:

  • ‘The Chancellor of the Exchequer must, no later than 5 April 2019, lay before the House of Commons a distributional analysis of—
  • (a) the effect of reducing the threshold for the additional rate to £80,000, and
  • (b) the effect of introducing a supplementary rate of income tax, charged at a rate of 50%, above a threshold of £125,000.’
