The Government is helping families with the rising costs of living, according to The Treasury, as new figures show a 14-month high in inflation, indicating high prices.
Although inflation is down from its peak of 5.2% in 2011, the consumer price index rose to 2.9% in June, from 2.7% in May.
At the same time, to help families with the cost of living, the Government has increased the tax-free personal allowance to £10,000, which will take 2.4 million people out of income tax altogether and save a typical basic rate taxpayer almost £600, and frozen fuel duty, which has kept petrol prices 13p per litre lower than they would otherwise have been.
