There are clearly mixed views within the Welsh Conservative group about their leader's call to reduce the 40% rate of tax if the Welsh Government gets power over income tax. You can read details of the proposals here. In response North Wales AM Antoinette Sandbach said on twitter:
As the latest tax policy has not been discussed with group I understand it is a "proposal" only. Why not to squeezed middle or low earners?
Despite her publicly questioning Andrew RT Davies' proposals, sources close to the leadership were relaxed about her comments and one Conservative AM told me they welcomed new ideas being put forward.
But another was less happy about the proposal not being discussed by AMs, saying that it would be down to the group to work out what to cut to pay for a tax reduction and fearing they're laid open to accusations of cutting tax for the rich.
