For immediate release
Responding to reports of a possible rise in national insurance to be announced next week, John O’Connell, chief executive of the TaxPayers' Alliance, said:
“This tax hike on working people would fly in the face of all the PM’s promises.
“Suggesting this rise is the only sustainable solution for social care is smoke and mirrors. Receipts will end up being used for day-to-day spending, while taxpayers will be left paying the highest tax bills in a generation.
“Taxpayers will not tolerate being hoodwinked into yet more Tory tax rises.”
