Budget press release notes

I am looking at the NIC rates for 2011-12  as set out in the press notice 2. It shows the change to the employee's primary rate to 12% but the employer's secondary rate is showing at 13.8%. I thought that this increase would not happen to the class1 NIC secondary rate. Did I hear it wrong?
