Cameron joins calls to resist tax increases in Budget

Rishi Sunak will call for “honesty” about the need to reduce spending when he delivers his Budget speech on Wednesday, Treasury sources have said. “You will hear the word honesty used a lot. He will be very clear to people that we’ve spent at wartime levels to get people through this, which was the right thing to do, but this can’t go on forever,” they said. Meanwhile, senior Conservatives including former prime minister David Cameron are warning the Chancellor not to use major tax hikes to balance the books. In an interview with CNN, Mr Cameron said that tax increases “wouldn’t make any sense at all” before the economy was up and running again. His comments come as Tory and Labour MPs plot to thwart an increase in corporation tax, leading Downing Street to threaten to remove the party whip from Tory MPs who rebel against the Budget.
