“Yes, they should keep it for the moment. It may not be fair to everyone but it’s needed to pay off UK debt. The revenue has to be generated somewhere and this is the best way.”

JACK HARVEY | LOREGA LTD
“No, the 50p tax was introduced a few years ago as a temporary measure. I think it will be justified to reduce it in the next budget as it is disproportionately high.”

JASON WARD | MARKETRESEARCH.COM
“No, personally I think that it is unfair only penalising the high earners, because they are the ones who work hard to earn their money. The quicker they get rid of it, the better.”
