REDDITCH MP Rachel Maclean has welcomed a tax cut worth £450 a year on average for people in the borough.
Last week the employee National Insurance contributions were cut from 12 per cent to 10 per cent.
The Government will also cut National Insurance for the Self Employed, delivering a total average saving of £340 a year which will come into force later this year.
These tax cuts mean a senior nurse with five years of experience will receive an annual gain of £600; a typical police officer will receive an annual gain of over £630; a typical junior doctor will receive an annual gain of over £750 and a family with two earners on the average income will be £900 better off a year.
Mrs Maclean said: “As a tax cutting Conservative, I’m proud to have voted for a tax cut for thousands of my hardworking constituents.
“Our tax cuts mean people get to keep more of their hard-earned money, ensuring work always pays under a Conservative Government.
“That’s in stark contrast to the Labour Party who want to borrow an extra £28 billion – and they’ll pay for it by raising your taxes.”
