To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, if he will make it his policy that the recipients of carer's allowance lose only a proportion of that allowance when they begin to earn more that £110 per week.
16 September 2015
The information requested is not available.
A carer can earn up to £110 a week after National Insurance, tax and other allowable expenses are deducted and still be able to receive Carer’s Allowance. The earnings limit was increased by 8% in April 2015 and 4,000 people will benefit from this increase this year. We have no plans to move to a taper system.
