§ Lord Newby
asked Her Majesty's Government:
How many people who were in employment in 1999–2000 paid Class 1 National Insurance contributions for less than 52 weeks; for how many weeks on average those people paid National Insurance contributions; what was their average annual income from employment; and what was their average National Insurance contribution; and [HL4092]
How many employees who were in employment in 1999–2000 paid Class 1 National Insurance contributions for more than one job simultaneously; and what was the total number of jobs held by employees who held more than one job simultaneously; and [HL4093]
What would be the estimated revenue yield if Class 1 National Insurance contributions were charged on the basis of total income rather than weekly income per employer. [HL4094]
§ Lord McIntosh of Haringey
I am afraid that it is not possible to provide answers to these questions as the Inland Revenue does not collate data on this basis.
