The Tory right are pressuring Cameron to respond to Brown's Budget tax cuts

The Tory right is pressuring
David Cameron to
pledge tax cuts in response to Gordon Brown’s Budget, where corporation and
income tax were slashed.

Brown’s 2% cut in income tax and business tax has created unease among the
Tories over Cameron’s refusal to offer any unfunded tax changes in the next
Conservative manifesto.

An FT
straw poll of senior Tories uncovered a frustration with
Cameron’s failure to make a stronger case for MPs.

The Institute fo Fiscal
Studies
, meanwhile, said Brown had secured his legacy as a tax
reforming chancellor.

IFS director, Richard Chote, said the personal and national insurance changes
‘would deliver real gains in transparency and reduced administrative and
compliance costs’.
