From April, 85,300 local workers will be paying £700 less in Income Tax each year.

But that's not enough for local Lib Dem campaigners Lucy Care snf Joe Natta. they wants to see an extra £100 tax cut announced in the budget to take that £700 tax cut up to an £800 a year tax cut.

Lucy Care said, "It's been a tough few years for residents across Derby. Everyone has felt the pinch. The Lib Dems have moved to help by cutting Income Tax bills by £700 by this April,but more is needed. Adding an extra £100 onto that tax cut would be a welcome boost for local workers."

The Lib Dems went into government to fix Britain's economy that had been left in ruins by Labour.

Joe said, "The economy is growing, there have been over a million jobs created and we've cut the deficit by a third. "By being in government Lib Dems have also stopped the Tories from introducing right wing policies including schools for profit and a proposal to allow bosses to fire staff at will."
