Illustrative draft legislation for a Citizen’s Basic Income

The Citizen’s Basic Income Trust occasionally sets up working groups to tackle particular pieces of work. A recent working group – containing a solicitor, a tax accountant, a student of the philosophy of law, and the Director of the Trust – was asked to think about what legislation to implement a Citizen’s Basic Income might look like.

We are publishing the outcome of the group’s work – a draft Act of Parliament to establish a Fair Allowance – as an educational exercise, and would be pleased to receive comments by email. We would be particularly interested to receive possible amendments to paragraphs, and on the reasons for suggesting such amendments.

The Trust is most grateful to members of the working group for the time that they have given to this exercise.
