Plaid plan means higher taxes for the poorest
Responding to the Plaid Cymru Leader’s calls for greater powers over tax bands, Andrew RT Davies MS, Leader of the Welsh Conservatives, said:
“Plaid Cymru has borrowed the Scottish Nationalist playbook on taxation, and the outcome will be higher taxes for the poorest in Wales.
“As we have seen in Scotland, people on higher wages will consider leaving if tax rates aren’t competitive with other parts of the UK, and the outcome will be a higher tax burden on the lowest earners.
“The Welsh Conservatives would reverse Plaid and Labour’s cut to business rates relief and reform our rates to make them fairer for Welsh businesses.”
