Amongst the measures announced to help people right across Liberton & Gilmerton include:
A further rise of the tax free personal allowance to £10,500 from 2015.
The continual increase of the personal tax allowance by the UK Government is already putting real money back into the pockets of working people and has removed three million of the lowest paid workers out of tax all together.
A further freeze on Fuel Duty, helping hardworking families fill up their tank for less. Fuel is now around 20p per litre cheaper than it would have been under a Labour government.
A new ISA savings limit of £15,000
A cut in the price of your next pint at the pub!
