Shadow chancellor George Osbourne has slammed the pre-Budget report as ‘not
leadership but followership’.
Osbourne said that PBR plans to increase the IHT threshold and looking into
taxing non-domiciles came about because of recent Tory tax policy announcements.
‘For ten years they have sucked millions out of IHT, pulling first-time
buyers into stamp duty and leaving non-doms, now a week after what we put
forward they scrabble around to find something to say,’ said Osbourne.
‘The public will see this as a desperate, cynical stunt.’
