For immediate release
Responding to warnings from the chancellor that there is limited room for tax cuts, John O’Connell, chief executive of the TaxPayers' Alliance, said:
“Taxpayers will feel desperately let down if Jeremy Hunt doesn’t walk the walk when it comes to reducing the impact of income tax.
“While the recent national insurance cut is welcome, if thresholds remain frozen and income tax rates remain unchanged, the chancellor will be giving with one hand to take with another.
“Hunt should turn rhetoric into action and give, families and hard working people the much needed relief they deserve.”
