David Cameron pledges tax cuts 'for 30m people'

David Cameron has pledged to cut taxes for 30 million people if the Conservatives win next year's election.

In a speech which cheered his party and ended their conference, he said he would raise the tax-free allowance from £10,500 to £12,500 by 2020.

He also said the threshold for the 40p income tax rate would be raised from £41,900 to £50,000 by the end of a five-year Conservative government.

The prime minister also used his speech at the Conservative party conference to outline his party's policies on the NHS and Europe.
