§ Mr. Speller
asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if he will consider removing the class 4 National Health contribution that imposes an additional charge upon the self-employed.
§ Mrs. Chalker
The class 4 contribution is an integral part of the present national insurance arrangements for the self-employed. The Government have undertaken to review the national insurance position of the self-employed generally and my right hon. Friend will make an announcement soon on the form of the review.
