Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg has pledged to create a fairer tax system
rather than reduce the overall tax burden, risking the wrath of some of his
Conservative coalition partners.
Times, the Liberal Democrat leader said he was ‘not making great claims
about the overall tax burden’ but instead would seek to provide a fairer tax
system. This would likely include reducing taxes for lower and middle-income
families while raising capital gains tax, he said.
“The Conservatives have always been ideologically in favour of a tax
reduction and the Liberal Democrats in favour of fairer taxes and the coalition
agreement strongly emphasises the latter,” said Clegg.
