Labour: 2/3 married couples won't gain from tax break

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..
