asked Her Majesty's Government:

What calculations have been made of the costs of the proposed rise in national insurance contributions to charities providing 24-hour care, supported accommodation and home care for long-term sick and disabled people; and whether they will consult the Enham Trust and other charities affected about the consequences of the proposal for them, and for those they work to help.

It is estimated that the changes to employers' national insurance contributions announced in the Budget will increase pay costs on average by 0.7 per cent next year.
