TPA hails "a positive speech for taxpayers"

Responding to the Prime Minister's speech at Conservative Party Conference and the announcement of two major taxation policies, Jonathan Isaby, Chief Executive of the TaxPayers' Alliance, said:

"This was a positive speech for taxpayers, with tax cuts for the lowest paid and long-overdue relief for ordinary people being clobbered by the higher rate of tax. Leaving more of people's money in their own pockets is not just morally right, but the best way to promote economic growth and long-term prosperity. Taxes in Britain have been too high for too long, and the Prime Minister is absolutely right to want to bring them down for hard-pressed working people.

"The next step must be to bring National Insurance thresholds in line with Income Tax, taking those on the lowest pay out of tax altogether."
