Lib Dems seek clarification from Tories on tax

Sticking points remain between Lib Dems and Tories on tax education and voting reform

A statement from the Liberal Democrats reveals the party is still seeking
clarification on fairer taxes, voting reform and education.

The news came in a statement from David Laws, an MP who is part of the Lib
Dem team talking to the Conservative party.

The two parties met for three hours today but it also emerged that the Lib
Dem negotiating team has also been speaking to Labour party representatives.

Commentators have expressed “surprise” that the Lib Dems and the Tories had
not apparently made as much progress in their talks as many believed.

The Lib Dems want to increase the income tax personal allowance but it is
understood about how it might be paid for. The Lib Dems intended to cover the
cost with a mansion tax but it seems unlikely that the Tory party would accept
that.
