Earlier this year, the tax threshold was raised from £8,632 to £9,500 a year, saving around 31million British workers £100 a year.
Despite this show of support for low-income workers, Mr Johnson is looking to hike National Insurance contributions as part of its social care plans following the revelation that waiting numbers for NHS treatment have jumped to 5.45million.
Later next week, the Government is set to announce plans to increase National Insurance contributions for 25million workers across the UK to fund their healthcare ambitions.
According to The Telegraph, Mr Johnson is floating around the idea of raising payments by one percent next April to coincide with annual changes to the National Insurance threshold bands.
However, he is facing slight opposition from his Chancellor as Mr Sunak is reportedly pushing for a steeper 1.25 percent rise on National Insurance contributions.
