Fairer taxes for local families

February 20, 2010

I met Vince Cable recently to discuss our new tax plans to help local families. Our proposals mean that no one will pay tax on the first £10,000 they earn. This will save most workers £700 in income tax each year. Many low paid or part-time workers will pay no tax at all.

These tax cuts will be paid for by measures including closing tax loopholes exploited by the very rich, taxes on pollution and a new ‘mansion tax’ on houses worth more than £2 million.

Under Labour, local families are paying more and getting less in return. In Lewisham we have the highest Council Tax in inner London.
As for the Conservatives, their only tax plan appears to be to cut taxes for millionaires!
