Paul condemns Labour plans to tax homeowners in Southampton Test

Today, Labour announced new plans to ensnare thousands of hardworking families in property taxes. Labour’s Shadow Chancellor said that he would halve the relief threshold on death duties which would mean even more thousands more properties in Southampton could be faced with Labour’s new tax .John McDonnell, the Shadow Labour Chancellor said “we will be reversing those giveaways”

Paul Holmes, the Conservative candidate for Southampton Test commented: “it is outrageous that Labour want to tax thousands of hardworking people on their family home. People who have worked hard, done the right thing and want to leave behind something for their children and grandchildren should not be hit by Labour’s punitive tax. This could effect lots of people across Southampton Test and is yet another why people should back Theresa May and Paul Holmes on June 8th”
