Under the Conservatives' plans, one member of a married couple or civil partnership will be allowed to transfer £1,000 of their tax-free personal allowance to their partner.

The party said the scheme will be worth up to £200 a year for four million couples, including civil partnerships.

Couples will receive the benefit at the end of the tax year in 2016.
