answer text The best way to drive economic growth is to raise productivity. Since 2010, this Government has provided over half a trillion pounds in capital investment, increased investment in skills, and reduced taxes for businesses. Lower taxes provide a strong incentive for businesses to invest in raising their productivity. Tax cuts include reductions to business rates worth over £10bn by 2023, freezing fuel duty for 8 years running, increasing R&D tax credits, and cutting corporation tax. more like this

They include switching from RPI to CPI indexation, making Small Business Rate Relief more generous so that 655,000 of the smallest businesses pay no rates, and providing a £1,000 relief for small and medium pubs in 2017-18 and 2018-19. Budget 2018 also announced a freeze on beer duty, making a typical pint 2p lower than it would otherwise have been.</p> more like this
