David Cameron has pledged to restore tax breaks for married couples if he is
voted into power.
The Tory leader made the promise in a TV interview at the weekend,
highlighting the need to ‘go right through the tax and benefits system and ask
ourselves why it is encouraging people to live separately’.
Gordon Brown has ruled out any such U-turn by the Labour Party, stating that
it would be unfair to unmarried partners and single parents.
Cameron made the comments on the eve of the Tory’s
justice policy review report due to be released tomorrow. The study, which
has been led by the former Tory leader Iain Duncan Smith, also recommends higher
taxes on alcohol.
