By April 2015 this Government's increases in the personal allowance (for those born after 5 April 1948) are estimated to have taken 3.2 million individuals out of the income tax system altogether. 287,000 of these individuals live in the East of England region, which includes the Parliamentary Constituency of Cambridge.

These estimates are based on the 2012-13 Survey of Personal Incomes, projected to 2015-16 using economic assumptions consistent with the Office for Budget Responsibility’s December 2014 economic and fiscal outlook.

HM Treasury does not publish this information at constituency level.
