Osborne’s unveils anti-recession plans

Shadow Chancellor George Osborne is set to announce details of a financial
package aimed at stymieing the resurgence of Prime Minister Gordon Brown.

The plans are likely to include tax cuts, according to
independent.co.uk.
This would represent something of a policy U-turn for the Tories, who have
steered clear of tax cuts, preffering to focus on a reduction in public
borrowing.

Measures to curb growing unemployment, reduce fuel bills for those on low
income families and cap the number of house repossessions are also expected to
feature.

A Tory source said: ”We are always in favour of putting money into people’s
pockets.’
