Vince blasts "feeble and unfunded" Tory tax plans

by Stephen Tall on October 1, 2007

Lib Dem shadow chancellor Vince Cable has criticised the tax plans of his Tory counterpart, George Osborne:

“Any expectation that the Conservatives had a radical and meaningful plan for fairer taxes has been blown out of the water with this utterly feeble set of half promises and unfunded commitments.

“The Tories have apparently made a large open-ended commitment without explaining how it will be paid for.

“They have borrowed from the Liberal Democrats the idea of taking action on non-domicile residents in the UK, but their proposal is completely inadequate and seems to be entirely voluntary.”
