Ipswich: Tax Transparency Plan
An idea by Ipswich MP Ben Gummer to publish a detailed breakdown of how the Government spends are money is expected to be accepted in tomorrow's budget.
Everyone would get a statement showing how much they pay for things like welfare, health and education.
Mr Gummer is telling Heart that he was really pleased with the news: "It's fantastic news and it shows that Parliament's working - that you can put down an idea, if it gets support from your collegaues and from the public, the government will listen and take it up. I know a lot of people get frustrated with the democratic process but this does actually show that what we're sent to do, sometimes happens."
Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg today supported the idea, saying:``It really does provide citizens of this country with far greater transparency on how the money they provide is spent.
That goes right to the heart of greater accountability in Government and empowering citizens in knowing where this money is spent.
I am sure the Chancellor will look at any opportunities of taking this very good initiative forward where that is possible.''
