In the letter from the Chancellor of the Exchequer to the Chairman of the Treasury Committee of 23 April, the Chancellor said he would set out our proposals to help those who lost out as a result of the withdrawal of the 10p starting rate of tax for the longer term in the pre-Budget report later this year. He also said that he would not wait unnecessarily until November before setting out how we intended to proceed. His announcement on 13 May is fully consistent with these commitments.
