10p Tax Rate

Asked when we would know more details as to how the Government planned to deal with the remaining 1.1 million households who had been affected by the removal of the 10p tax rate, the Prime Minister’s Spokesman (PMS) said that the Chancellor had already set out the plans for this year, and as he had said in his recent statement, for future years we would set out our plans in the Pre-Budget Report (PBR).

Put that when the Prime Minister had been asked a similar question at a recent press conference he had not mentioned the PBR, the PMS said that the position had been set out very clearly by the Chancellor in his statement to the House of Commons when he said that he would be setting out the arrangements for future years in the PBR.

Put that that meant there could be more money for next year, the PMS referred to what the Chancellor had said which was that, for future years, our aim was to continue the same level of support for those on lower incomes and proposals to do that would be brought forward in the PBR.
