Letwin won't promise tax cuts... yet

Oliver Letwin, shadow chancellor, has again said the Tory party will not promise tax cuts until it is sure it can keep deliver on them.

In response to mounting pressure from MPs and the Tory-supporting press, Letwin defended the Conservatives’ stance on delaying any announcement on specific tax cuts.

Letwin told ITV’s Dimbleby Programme: ‘I am not going to make promises until they are things we know we can deliver.’

But supporters want the shadow chancellor to announce huge cuts now to ensure the electorate gets the message early ahead of a general election expected to take place in May 2005.
