Judges Casadevall (President), Bratza, Bonello, Pellonpaa, Traja, Pavlovschi and Sikuta and Mr T Early (Section Registrar)
||22 August 2006
Human rights - Property - Discrimination - National insurance contributions - Applicant male required to pay national insurance contributions until age of 65 whereas woman required to make payments until age 60 - Whether violation of applicant's Convention rights - European Convention on Human Rights, art 14, First Protocol, art 1.
The fact that, under United Kingdom law, a man whose earnings fell above the relevant threshold was required to pay national insurance contributions until the pensionable age of 65, whereas a woman in an equivalent position was only required to make contributions until she reached the female pensionable age of 60, did not amount to a violation of art14 of the European Convention on Human Rights, taken in conjunction with art1 of the First Protocol.
