Cameron: Right to back marriage properly in tax system

Prime Minister David Cameron has said that married couples will receive a £1,000 tax break from 2015,

He said of the move: "Marriage is a great institution and it helps to build a good and strong society so I think its right to back marriage properly in the income tax system.

"Most other advanced industrial countries do it and we should do it too. I'm proud to be delivering on a promise I made in our manifesto."
