What would you do with £8.8bn? Lobby your MP on the National Insurance Contributions Bill
On Thursday 31st January 2008 MPs will be debating the National Insurance Contributions Bill. At the moment over 90% of workers pay national insurance (NI) at a rate of 11% on all earnings over £100, but high earners only pay 1% on their high earnings.
John McDonnell MP has tabled amendments which would mean everyone pays 11% on all earnings over £100 per week. This would raise an additional £8.8bn from high earners, and the LRC and Left Economics Advisory Panel (LEAP) are asking ‘what would you do with £8.8bn?’.
Andrew Fisher, Editor and Co-ordinator of LEAP has published some options for spending £8.8bn on the LRC blog.
Have your say on how you would spend £8.8bn.
Lobby your MP to support John McDonnell MP's amendments to the NI Contributions Bill, and ask them how they would spend £8.8bn.
Thanks to the LRC for their email update.
