Today the Chancellor announced changes that will help those who have been affected by the withdrawal of the 10p starting rate.
The proposal will increase the personal tax allowance by £600 to £6,035 for this financial year, benefiting all basic rate taxpayers under 65.
This will mean that 22 million people on low and middle incomes will gain an additional £120 this year.
This family tax cut provides support this year for those on middle incomes at a time where they face increased bills, so supporting the economy and displaying the Labour Party’s commitment to creating a more prosperous and fairer Britain.
Field has apologised:
“Over the weekend I allowed my campaign to become personal. I much regret that and I apologise without reservation,”
