TaxPayers’ Alliance responds to the Reform UK ‘contract’

For immediate release

Responding to the release of Reform UK’s ‘contract’, John O’Connell, chief executive of the TaxPayers' Alliance, said:

“Reform’s package of tax cuts, spending controls, and reducing regulation has the potential to offer real relief to Brits struggling under a record high tax burden and give a boost to businesses drowning in red tape.

"But while the plans for tax are big on promise, the details for reining in spending need to be spelt out for sceptical taxpayers.

“Nigel Farage knows how to stand out from the crowd. But for this to be the radical rethink he wants, taxpayers will expect detailed and deliverable proposals on which quangos will be scrapped and which spending programmes will be cut.

On plans to scrap the licence fee, Joanna Marchong, investigations campaign manager of the TaxPayers’ Alliance said:

“Abolition of the anachronistic licence fee would do the BBC and households a world of good, allowing people to choose which channels they want to pay for and returning the BBC to its original, public service remit.”
