Tories put tax cuts on election agenda
The Tories will announce tax-cutting measures in the New Year buoyed by support for their inheritance tax proposal
Encouraged by positive response to its inheritance tax plans, the
Conservatives plans to announce tax cuts as part of its election agenda,
starting with business taxation.
Osborne, shadow chancellor, told the Daily Mail he planned to
announce proposals to cut corporation tax in the New Year.
Osborne said he would ‘approach each budget thinking how I can reduce taxes;
how can I prepare Britain’s economy to compete with China in the world economy’.
He slammed chancellor Alistair Darling’s planned changes to
capital gains tax as ‘a
mess’ which would have to be reformed.
