Lib Dem minister Danny Alexander, the Chief Secretary to the Treasury, has called on the chancellor to go further in cutting income tax for the lowest paid.
Speaking to the London Evening Standard, Mr Alexander said:
“We need fairer taxes in these tough times.
“From April next year, we will have lifted two million people out of income tax altogether and provided a tax cut of almost £550 to over 20 million low and middle earners Lifting the personal allowance to £10,000 would provide a further £160 tax cut to low and middle earners and take hundreds of thousands more out of tax.”
If you agree that we should make our tax system fairer, sign our petition now.
