The Daily Mail features an article all about government Marriage Tax Breaks system. Tory campaigners urge Mr Cameron to increase the current level of Marriage Tax Breaks from £150 a year to £2000 for a couple.

Daily Mail – Marriage Tax Breaks Increase to £2000

Handing them a generous allowance could ‘make a real difference’ to those with offspring aged under five, said former education minister Tim Loughton.

He is among party traditionalists who welcomed yesterday’s confirmation that David Cameron will bring forward plans to enshrine a marriage tax allowance in law ‘very soon’ – probably in the autumn.
