Boris Johnson is facing a mounting backlash over his plan to hike National Insurance to pay for social care reform as he was warned it will cause ‘significant damage’ to the Conservative Party.

Liz Kendall, the Shadow Social Care Minister, slammed the Government breaking its promises after election, stressing how its plan to fix social care can be considered a way to raise taxes.

The Prime Minister is expected to announce a new NHS and Social Care Levy this week to provide a funding boost to the health service and overhaul help for the elderly. But the levy is expected to consist of an increase of at least one per cent on employee and employer National Insurance contributions (NICs), hitting millions of workers in the pocket. Ministers, MPs and Conservative grandees have all warned Mr Johnson not to go ahead with the move because it will break a key 2019 Tory election manifesto pledge not to raise taxes. There are also growing fears of a hammering at the ballot box at future elections from younger workers who will be disproportionately affected by the hike. Lord Hammond, the Tory former chancellor, said today he believes asking young workers to ‘subsidise older people who’ve accumulated wealth during their lifetime’ is ‘wrong’.
