MP promises tax cut
12:00pm Saturday 5th January 2013 in News
A TOTAL of 74,273 people in the borough will have their taxes cut in April according to new research.
Warrington South MP David Mowat hailed the change brought in by the Government which will also see 3,500 lifted out of paying tax altogether with the amount an individual can earn before tax to £9,440.
The Government is also capping the amount one household can get in benefits and capping the amount benefits are increased next year which is opposed by Labour.
The Conservative MP said: “In Warrington, if you want to work hard and get on, the Conservatives are on your side. Your taxes will be cut so you keep more of the money you have earned. And we are capping the increase in benefits so that benefit increases don’t outstrip increases in earnings.
“Labour say they support a wage cap for hundreds of thousands of public sector workers, but they won’t support the same cap for those on out-of-work benefits. This isn’t fair and we will not let them bring back their something for nothing culture.”
