New Tory Proposals On Marriage Tax Fundamentally Unfair Says Kidd

January 19, 2010 12:15 PM

Families have been let down by LabourCommenting on today's report on the Tories' marriage tax proposals from Iain Duncan Smith's think tank, The Centre for Social Justice, Nick Clegg's Chief of Staff, Danny Alexander said: "Iain Duncan Smith's proposals on marriage tax do not address the fundamental unfairness of the Tories' policy. Giving tax breaks to married couples where one person can afford to stay at home, but doing nothing for couples who both work is unfair. And penalising a woman whose husband has left her with a tax hike is unfair."

Heather added "This policy ultimately takes money out of the pockets of the poorest families and gives it to rich ones. The Tories' first instinct is to help those at the top, that's why they can't be trusted to make this country fairer."
