§ 76. Mr. Clegg
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he will take steps to extend the categories for which payment of Selective Employment Tax is refunded, following the 50 per cent. increase in Selective Employment Tax proposed in the Budget, which will adversely affect the employment available for part-time and disabled low income workers.
§ Mr. Harold Lever
I propose to increase refunds in respect of part-time workers to two-thirds of the tax, so as to maintain the effective rate of tax for these workers at its present level, and to make similar refunds in respect of workers aged 65 and over.
