New research has revealed that Conservatives in Government are cutting taxes for 74,273 people in Warrington in April next year. By raising the amount an individual can earn before tax to £9,440, the Government will lift 3,500 people in Warrington out of tax altogether. A full-time worker on the minimum wage will have seen their income tax bill halve since 2010.
The Government is also reforming Labour's 'something for nothing' welfare culture, by capping the amount one household can get in benefits and capping the amount benefits are increased next year. Labour oppose these reforms.
David Mowat commented:
"In Warrington, if you want to work hard and get on, the Conservatives are on your side. Your taxes will be cut so you keep more of the money you have earned. And we are capping the increase in benefits so that benefit increases don't outstrip increases in earnings.
"Labour say they support a wage cap for hundreds of thousands of public sector workers, but they won't support the same cap for those on out-of-work benefits. This isn't fair and we will not let them bring back their something for nothing culture."
