The proposed new clause rejected by a majority of MPs in this vote was titled: Review of revenue effects of Act and stated:
- (1) The Chancellor of the Exchequer must review the revenue effects of this Act and lay a report before the House of Commons within six months of the passing of this Act and every 12 months thereafter.
- (2) Any review under this section must include an assessment of—
- (a) the impact of this Act on revenue derived from—
- (i) employment, and
- (ii) self-employment; and
- (b) the impact of the revenues under this Act from employment and self-employment on the revenues derived from taxation on—
- (i) dividends,
- (ii) rental income, and
- (iii) other forms of personal income.”
The rejected new clause was accompanied by the following explanatory statement from its proposer:
