NORTH Devon MP Nick Harvey has said yesterday’s (Wednesday’) Budget was good news for the region.

He said People would be paying less at the petrol pump, on their tax bill and high water bills should come down.

“By cutting income tax for people on low and middle incomes, more than a million of the lowest earners, many of whom are women and part time workers, will be lifted out of paying income tax altogether,” he said.

“Scrapping Labour’s fuel duty rise goes some way to helping people make ends meet and a firm commitment to taking action on water bills in the South West will further help families and businesses as the country deals with the mess that Labour left our finances in.”
