Chancellor promises little change but more complexity

Published on 2 December 2004

In his pre-budget report today the Chancellor made no significant short-term changes for those on low incomes. Those he did make will not address any of the fundamental complexities of the tax, tax credit, pension credit and other welfare systems to which these new figures are to be applied. Until these complexities are addressed many people will still not receive everything to which they are entitled.
