George Osborne to cut taxes by extending austerity and creating smaller state
James KirkupGeorge Osborne will set out plans to cut taxes by extending the austerity programme and creating a permanently smaller State.
The Chancellor will say in a speech in Birmingham that Britain must face up to “hard truths” about the need to make more cuts and reforms to get a stable economy.
His comments come after David Cameron hinted that a future Conservative government will seek to cut taxes for “the lowest paid” before helping those on high salaries.
Despite almost four years of Coalition austerity, the Government is still borrowing too much and spending too much on interest on the national debt, Mr Osborne will say.
