Mark Lancaster MP: Cutting taxes for 46,101 in Milton Keynes North and capping increases in benefits

New research has revealed that Conservatives in Government are cutting taxes for 46,101 people in Milton Keynes North from April next year. The Government will lift 1,866 out of tax altogether.

The Government is reforming Labour's 'something for nothing' welfare culture, by capping the amount one household can get in benefits and capping the amount benefits are increased next year. Labour oppose these reforms.

Mark Lancaster commented:

"In Milton Keynes, if you want to work hard and get on, the Conservatives are on your side. Your taxes will be cut so you keep more of the money you have earned. And we are capping the increase in benefits so that benefit increases don't outstrip increases in earnings.

"Labour want benefits to go up more than the earnings of people in work. This isn't fair and we will not let them bring back their something for nothing culture."
