Tories call for tax breaks for married couples

Conservative MPs say riots show need for tax breaks to be sped up

CONSERVATIVE MPs have called on Prime Minister David Cameron (pictured) to speed up the implementation of tax breaks for married couples.

The coalition government has said it will introduce tax rewards for married couples “before 2015”. But the Financial Times reports that Tories are calling on the government to introduce measures in the next Budget following the riots across England last week.

Nadine Dorries, the MP for Mid-Bedfordshire, told the FT: “It was in our manifesto and the coalition agreement. The only barrier to it being imposed is the Liberal Democrats. We believe that, given what happened over the past week, our priority should be reinforcing family.”
