One of the core campaigns for the Lib Dems back in 2010 was the need to lift poorer people out of tax altogether.
In the Co alition Government we've made a start on this and the tax threshold has gone up. The stated aim is for the threshold to get to £10,000.
We believe this threshold needs to be got to quickly rather than more gradually so we've launched a petition to help our campaigners and Parliamentarians put pressure on the Chancellor.
If you agree that the poorest of working people should be taken out of tax, do please sign.
