The member fails to point out that the chancellor also reviewed the working tax credit scheme, which is a successful scheme that allows people to work for good value and ensure that they earn appropriate amounts of money for their families. I ask her please not to take one part of the chancellor's statement and disconnect it from the increases that he made in the working tax credit. Let us not forget that the party that promises high taxation is the SNP—it will increase taxation by 3p in the pound, at least.
