Abolish 50p tax rate, says Centre for Policy Studies
A new report has called for the abolition of the 50p tax rate and a cut in corporation tax to stimulate the UK economy.
The Centre for Policy Studies think tank is calling for employers' national insurance contributions to be reduced and tax-free personal allowances to be increased to £500.
It says the £14bn package could be funded by freezes in international aid and by cutting relief on pension contributions.
