Parliament broke up for the election campaign at 3.45 am on Friday morning, after voting on over 100 different motions and amendments before business closed for almost four weeks.
As well as the decision to cut the 30% ruling for international workers, MPs also voted in favour of increasing the tax on bank profits, introducing a dividend tax on share buy-backs and raising the upper income tax rate by 0.2 percentage point.
In addition, MPs voted in favour of a motion to abolish the extra payment on single use plastics, which is widely regarded as a flop. It is, as yet, unclear if the outgoing government will adopt the measure.
The election takes place on November 22. Parliament in its current form will reconvene for the last time on December 5, while the new MPs will be sworn in on December 6.
