Opposition Day — [Un-Allotted Day]
David Gauke (Exchequer Secretary, HM Treasury; South West Hertfordshire, Conservative)
I want to make a bit more progress.
That is also why we increased the child tax credit by £135, in line with inflation, which means that, by this April, it will have increased by £390 since May 2010. It is telling that the Opposition motion makes no mention of this Government’s plans to increase the personal
allowance, no doubt because their last contribution to the debate on income tax for the low paid was the 10p debacle.
