Finance Bill — New Clause 9 — Report on Expected Impact of Coronavirus Support Payments Options — 24 May 2021 at 21:45
The majority of MPs voted not to require a report report on the expected effects on various economic indicators of the coronavirus job retention scheme and the self-employment income support scheme being continued until 30 September 2021 rather than until 31st December 2021.
The proposed new clause rejected in this vote was titled: Review of changes to coronavirus support payments etc and began:
- (1) The Chancellor of the Exchequer must review the impact on investment in parts of the United Kingdom and regions of England of the changes made to coronavirus support payments etc by this Act and lay a report of that review before the House of Commons within six months of the passing of this Act.
- (2) A review under this section must consider the effects of the provisions on—
- (a) business investment,
- (b) employment,
- (c) productivity,
- (d) GDP growth, and
- (e) poverty.
- (3) A review under this section must consider the following scenarios—
- (a) the coronavirus job retention scheme and the self-employment income support scheme are continued until 30th September 2021, and
- (b) the coronavirus job retention scheme and self-employment income support scheme are continued until 31st December 2021.
The rejected amendment was accompanied by the following statement from its proposer:
- This new clause would require a report comparing the effect of (a) the coronavirus job retention scheme and the self-employment income support scheme being continued until 30 September 2021 and (b) the coronavirus job retention scheme and self-employment income support scheme being continued until 31 December 2021 on various economic indicators.
