Income tax cut for 2,600,000 workers across the region
From the front page of our manifesto – to your pocket!
286,000 people in the North West of England have been taken completely out of paying income tax through the increases in the tax threshold.
2.6 million people in the North West have had an income tax cut.
North West Lib Dem MEP Chris Davies said, ““2.6 million of my constituents will get a £700 tax cut compared to 2010 when Labour were in power – and it is the lowest paid that are getting the benefit with 286,000 people taken out of tax altogether.
“279,231 families in the region could benefit from tax free childcare and 95,000 businesses will benefit from the changes to National Insurance,
creating and preserving jobs.”
Our Spring Regional Conference this weekend was a great success – as the new format of training and policy theme debates proved a great hit with attendees.
Simon Hughes MP topped a bill of Lib Dem key speakers between the policy discussions.
Our team for Europe 2014 were out in force too, with a little over 12 months to polling day.
