Michelle Mulherin: I call for a change in the operation of the carers' benefit scheme and the manifest unfairness to which it gives rise. A particular case has brought it to my attention.

...married couples who earn enough to pay the higher rate. If two people are working but earning a low wage, tax individualisation does not have an impact.
