Gauke attacks 'fiscal nimbys'

Gauke attacks 'fiscal nimbys'
Treasury minister David Gauke has hit out at critics of the Coalition's plans to cut child benefit for higher rate taxpayers.

The Exchequer Secretary to the Treasury told The House magazine "fiscal nimbys" want to keep their child benefit but let others take the cuts needed to get the deficit down. He also said that families like his own - he has three children and stands to lose £2,500 a year - would have to “live within [their] means… just like the country."

Labour hit back this evening, saying his comments were “insulting".
