Past: Inheritance tax

With the Daily Express, we collected over 300,000 signatures calling for the abolition of Inheritance Tax. In 2007 George Osborne promised that he would raise the tax threshold to £1 million per person.

Although we were aggrieved by George Osborne's subsequent lack of action we have continued to remind the Conservatives of their previous commitment.
