What have the Lib Dems achieved in government - part 2


The second Liberal Democrat achievement is closely linked to the first. We've stopped the Conservative plans to give a tax cut to the richest. The room for manoeuvre on tax cuts has been very limited and the Liberal Democrats have insisted that any benefit be targeted at those on the lowest incomes.

So we've stopped the Tory plans to give tax cuts to dead millionaires and we've said that we will only countenance the abolition of the 50p top tax rate if it is replaced with a mansion tax or similar.
