TPA backs calls for tax cuts

Reacting to comments from Boris Johnson that the government should prioritise tax cuts, John O’Connell, chief executive of the TaxPayers’ Alliance, said:

"It's refreshing to hear a politician advocating lower taxes for people and businesses, as well as scrapping the hated HS2. 

As we approach Brexit, the UK has an exciting opportunity to become a more liberal, competitive economy, and boost economic growth to fund world class public services that are efficient, modern and reliable.

Our friends and allies in the United States and Australia are cutting taxes, so there's no reason we can't do the same and give families and businesses a well-earned break.”
