CARERS' ALLOWANCE
EDM #1371
Tabled 28 April 2009
2008-09 Session
That this House believes that to mark the end of Carers Week positive action should be taken to improve support to carers by ending the anomaly of the cliff edge effect of earnings rising slightly above the carers' earnings limit, resulting in the loss of the whole allowance; and calls on the Government to make carers' allowance a fixed allowance, up-rated at the same time as other state benefits and paid to all carers, regardless of income and including retired carers, in the same way as child benefit is paid to all parents regardless of income.
