Shadow chancellor Ed Balls tweeted:
With David Cameron, the truth is always so different from the spin - 2/3 of married couples won't benefit from his tax break (nor widows)..
Of course it's insulting that £3.85 a week would persuade anyone to get married. And the money will be paid mainly to men not women..
Tax breaks for married couples worth up to £200 a year will be introduced from 2015, David Cameron has announced.
If David Cameron’s so-called marriage tax break is his answer, then the Prime Minister has the wrong question.
The Prime Minister has finally committed to a tax break for married couples in a quite personal newspaper article.
