Tax and Benefits

This Conservative-led Government has made an £800 tax cut for 26,000 working people in North Cornwall.

Labour left a welfare system that disincentivised work and trapped people in poverty. The public lost trust in the system because it did not reward work and created a dependent culture. Whilst Labour remain the welfare party, Conservatives are bringing benefits under control.

The tax-free Personal Allowance will increase to £10,600 in April, and with over 1.7 million more people in work and having the security of a pay packet at the end of the month, Scott will fight to ensure that no one on work related benefits is better off than those people in work.
