Welsh Liberal Democrats' leader in the Westminster has announced that he would not support a rise in VAT in the upcoming budget on Tuesday. Leader Roger Williams, the MP for Radnorshire and Brecon has said that the rise in the VAT would affect heavily to the poorest people in the society.
According to sources, the VAT rise could be a measure in the new Budget which is to be announced by the Chancellor Mr. George Osborne.
The coalition government wants to cut the deficit of UK. The deficit had to be controlled else it would continue to increase and that would lead to the increase in interest rates affecting the public services, said the Lib-Dem leader Mr. Williams.
He has also added something had to be done to resolve the problem keeping the poor people of this country in mind. This could be done by giving the private sectors a boost so that the unemployed people of the country would find them well placed.
In an interview Mr. Williams has totally rejected the idea of any cuts in the country and has said that the cuts could have a harmful side effect to the economy.
