On 7th March 2016 the House of Lords considered the Tax Credits (Income Thresholds and Determination of Rates) (Amendment) Regulations 2016.
Baroness Manzoor moved, as an amendment to the motion to approve the Regulations, at the end to insert “but that this House regrets that the draft Regulations reduce incentives for low-income working people to increase their salaries, will lead to an increase in overpayments of tax credits, and could place families in additional hardship at the end of the financial year”.
The House divided:
Contents: 104 | Not Contents: 206 | Result: Government Win
The Bishop of Gloucester voted Content.
