David Cameron has vowed to cut taxes in a bid to help families struggling with soaring bills

David Cameron

David Cameron vowed that the Conservatives will cut taxes ‘over time’.

He claims the tax cuts are a bid to help families that are struggling with
soaring bills.

Cameron addressed rising inflation in a keynote speech and has ruled out
specific tax cuts at the next election.

He said: ‘When Gordon Brown and Alistair Darling claim inflation is only 2% a
year, you have to ask where on earth they do their shopping,’ The Sun
reported.

In the last year, food prices have soared by up to 30%, energy bills by at
least 10% and petrol by 8%.

Cameron added that, ‘a new Conservative government will be on the side of the
working people, with a long-term plan to fix the country’s finances and make
sure public money is spent properly.’
