Cameron promises tax cuts for 30 million people if Torys win


David Cameron has pledged to cut tax for 30 million people if the Conservatives are voted in power again in the 2015 general election.
Cameron has advised he will raise the tax-free personal allowance from £10,500 to £12,500 and has also promised that the threshold for the 40p income tax rate would be raised from £41,900 to £50,000 under a future Conservative government.

Cameron also made further promises to protect the NHS budget, scrap the human rights act and will ensure every teenager will have a place on the “National Citizenship Service scheme”.

These proposed tax cuts were today announced at the Conservative party conference in Birmingham, where George Osborne announced earlier in the week that the Conservatives would scrap the 55% “death tax” on pensions. They also announced some controversial plans to freeze working age benefits for two years, which has been criticised by some as an attack on the poor.

The Prime Minister talked in detail about the economy and how his proposals will effect families:

"If our economic plan for the past four years has been about our country, and saving it from economic ruin, our plan for the next five years will be about you and your family and helping you get on"

Shadow health secretary Andy Burnham said Mr Cameron's promises "have been shown to be not worth the paper they are written on".
"People will take David Cameron's pre-election pledges on the NHS with a large pinch of salt," he said.
"He promised no privatisation but has proceeded to put NHS services up for sale without the permission of the public. He promised to protect the NHS but its getting harder to see your GP and waiting times are going up."
