A fair tax system - Policies and Manifesto
MK is committed to effective public intervention to tackle ills in society such as unemployment and poor housing. This means that there is a need for a sufficient public resource and this implies fair and redistributive taxation.

Fair taxation based on ability to pay, with increased spending to be partly funded by shifts in taxation onto the better-off, lies at the heart of our policies.

Since 1979, there has been a major shift in taxation from direct to indirect taxation. Tory and Labour reforms have meant lighter taxes on wealth and profit, but a financial squeeze upon the poorest in society.

Mebyon Kernow – the Party for Cornwall supports:

MK will also oppose all plans for regional pay presently being promoted by central government and other bodies, with pay scales in Cornwall equivalent to those in the rest of the United Kingdom.
