Commenting on the raising of the Personal Allowance further than already planned, Jon Hubbard 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.

"Today's announcement means that by April, 190,700 ordinary working people in Wiltshire will get a further Income Tax cut, bringing the total tax cut to £600 a year since Liberal Democrats joined the Coalition Government.

The Liberal Democrats aim to increase the amount of money you can earn tax-free to £10,000 by 2015, which would be a total tax cut of £700 a year for most people.

"In Wiltshire, this welcome news also means that the Liberal Democrats have lifted 16,760 low-earners out of paying Income Tax all together since the Coalition Government came to power.

"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 across Wiltshire."

Can you help Wiltshire Liberal Democrats to win?

Unlike other Parties who are funded by big business and the unions, the Liberal Democrats rely entirely on volunteers and supporters like you.
