VM452 - Apprentice Council Tax Threshold Motion 2017, TSR Conservative & Unionist Party
This house believes that the income threshold for apprentices who are required to pay council tax should be increased, with additional consideration for London.

Currently only apprentices who earn less than £195 per week are exempt from paying council tax. Full-time students in college and university are already exempt, as are 18 and 19 year olds in full-time education. It is the belief of the Conservative Party that to encourage apprenticeships we ought to treat apprentices on a more equal footing to students in full-time education, and providing a tax-relief to more apprentices will reduce the burden they face entering the world of work whilst also learning valuable qualifications.

Under the Local Government Finance Act 1992, the definition of an 'apprentice' has the meaning for the time being assigned to it by order made by the Secretary of State. This house calls on the Secretary of State to update the definition of an 'apprentice', ensuring that such update increases the basic income threshold and adding a separate income threshold for apprentices in London.

It appears that Cran may not have taken into the account that i perform all requests at the end at once (simpler). In this case it's my fault for not reminding him of that since he's not had to do many results in a while.

For clarity..

One Nay has been changed to an Aye in seat 52.
One Abstain has been removed due to a double vote in seat 15.

Result updated and officially validated in Cran's post.
