Budget 2012

 


Responding to today’s Budget, Dawn Primarolo MP said:

 


“The Tories and Lib Dems should have listened to hard-pressed families in Bristol South when they were setting the Budget.  Instead, they’ve taken advice from the millionaires they have round to dinner.  After 25 years as an MP, it takes a lot to shock me, but I am genuinely astounded that the Government’s top priority is to slash tax for the super rich. 

 

It is a cruel irony that while the few will be preparing to splash out on exotic holidays or new cars with their tax cut, part time workers are desperately trying to find extra hours.  Many who can’t find extra work will lose their Working Tax Credit in April.  The result will mean that couples could be £700 a year better off by going on the dole than if they stay in work to provide for their families.”
