People earning as much as £60,000 a year are not "rich" and would not face tax increases under a Labour government, the shadow chief secretary to the Treasury said today.
In an interview with the Daily Telegraph, Rachel Reeves said:
I think the focus should be on those privileged few right at the top, and that’s not people earning £50,000 or £60,000 a year.
We don’t have any plans or desire to increase taxes amongst people in that band of income.
