Social care tax for over-40s unfair

Plans to tax all workers over 40 an extra 2.5% to pay for social care have been described as “unfair” by former pensions minister Baroness Altmann. The Tory peer said resistance to the idea would be strong. “Many of these people are only working because their pensions are so low they cannot make ends meet,” she said. “There is no simple solution to this, but we really need to spread the provision of care rather than compulsory taxation for one group of people.” A cross-party alliance of MPs back the plans which were supported by Matt Hancock, the health secretary over the weekend.
