50,900 Bridgend taxpayers will get Income Tax cut in April

December 5, 2012 5:03 PM

Commenting on the raising of the Personal Allowance further than already planned, the Welsh Liberal Democrats Assembly Member for South Wales West, Peter Black said:

"Liberal Democrats are working for a stronger economy and a fairer society, so that everyone can get on in life. That's why we are cutting taxes for working people in Wales.

"Today's announcement means that by April, 50,900 ordinary working people in Bridgend will get a further Income Tax cut, bringing the total tax cut to £600 a year since Liberal Democrats joined the Coalition Government.

"This news is particularly welcome because it also means that the Liberal Democrats have lifted 6,260 low-earners out of paying Income Tax altogether since the Coalition Government came to power.

"Liberal Democrats want fairer taxes, which is why we made raising the tax-free allowance our number one priority at the General Election - so important that we put it on the front page of our manifesto.

"When times are tough, with rising bills and wages not keeping pace with inflation, we want to give people real, practical help.

"Cutting Income Tax will not deal with all of those problems, but it will help. And I hope it will make a big difference to every family in this country."
