Lords Select Committee to examine fairness in the tax system
Released 23 November 2018
The House of Lords Select Committee on Intergenerational Fairness and Provision will explore whether the tax system is fair to people at different stages in life.
The Committee will consider whether it is appropriate to provide universal benefits with qualifications based on age, the balance between income and property tax and whether the ageing population will have a profound effect on tax and spending policies in the coming decades. Two evidence sessions, with academics, think tanks and media commentators will be held on 27 November 2018.
