answer text <p>The Government is committed to public service pensions which are fair to workers and fair to other taxpayers. The tapered annual allowance is focussed on the highest earning pension savers, to ensure that the tax relief they receive is not disproportionate to that of other savers. The Government is aware of specific concerns raised by some high-earning NHS doctors impacted by annual allowance tax charges. As the Chancellor said at the Treasury Select Committee, we are currently in discussions with the Department of Health and Social Care about providing additional pension flexibility for NHS doctors affected by annual allowance tax charges.</p> more like this

answer text <p>The government is committed to making work pay and keeping more money in people’s pockets.</p><p> </p><p>On 1 April we saw another above inflation increase to our National Living Wage, meaning a full-time worker on the National Living Wage will be earning £690 more over the coming year. And the personal allowance has increased to £12,500, meaning a typical basic rate taxpayer will pay £130 less tax than in 2018-19 and £1,205 less tax than in 2010-11.</p><p> </p><p>Economic growth is key to growing wages. That’s why we’re investing record amounts in infrastructure, supporting businesses to grow and keeping taxes low. Wages are growing strongly, at 3.2% in the latest data and have outstripped inflation for 12 consecutive months.</p><p> </p><p>The government has an aspiration to end low pay and will set a new remit for the Low Pay Commission, for the years beyond 2020, later this year.</p><p> </p> more like this
