Cameron: tax burden isn't everything

Tory leader says tax cuts may be possible in first Tory administration

David Cameron has said voters should not focus on the tax burden when
considering whether the government has cut tax.

‘Using the tax burden is never a good idea because you can reduce or increase
the tax burden depending on what you do with government borrowing. It is not a
good measure of our success,’ he said in an
interview
with the FT
.

The Tory leader was outlining the Tories’ position on tax. Public finances
were in a ‘bad state’, he said, although he added that tax cuts might still be
possible in a first Tory government.
