Stories involving John Redwood

Tensions within the coalition government over the proposals for a rise in capital gains tax have been further stoked by chief secretary to the treasury David Laws, who described Tory backbencher John Redwood's alternative plans for a "tapered" rise as "ingenious" in an interview with The Times.


Cameron listening on tax plans

David Cameron has said he will take all views into consideration before making a decision on capital gains tax in the face of growing disquiet from the backbenches, while Iain Duncan Smith said George Osborne was aware of objections. Vince Cable said: "It's not actually an argument between the coalition partners, it's an argument between a few Conservative backbenchers and others."


According to the Daily Mail, Conservative MP John Redwood has warned that up to thirty Tory MPs are likely to rebel against Liberal Democrat plans to charge capital gains tax on company share schemes.


Prominent Conservative backbencher John Redwood has suggested that victims of cuts could 'put on a jumper.' "You can turn down the thermostat a little and put on a jumper,' he said.
