“This Government has a lot to answer for. We are the 7th richest nation on this planet and we should be able to look after our elderly and disabled with care and dignity.
“The government’s decision to cut the 50p rate of tax has cost the Treasury many millions of pounds that could and should have been spent on improving care. In addition, not enough is being done to capture the tax dodgers and avoiders who are robbing decent taxpayers and costing the country billions.”
