Helping Hardworking People

Jason is delighted that 37,759 people in the Holme Valley, Colne Valley and Lindley are benefitting from the biggest income tax cut in a generation.

The amount of money people can earn before paying any income tax has risen to £9,440, and 24 million people across Britain will pay up to £600 less this year than in 2010. 3,836 people who live in his constituency will have been lifted out of income tax altogether by this Government, with 2.2 million people across the country.

This Government has also started to cap benefits at £26,000 per year, so no household can claim more than the average working family earns. Since the start of the financial crisis there has been a 20% rise in welfare payments, whilst wages have only risen by 10%. This Government has now limited benefit payment increased to 1%, as it is not fair that benefits should rise at a faster rate than public sector pay.

This Government is cutting corporation tax to show Britain is open for business and to attract business and jobs so that we can compete in the global race.

As a result of all the changes, nine out of ten working families will be almost £300 on average better off, rewarding those who want to get on in life by letting people keep more of the money they have worked hard to earn.
