Conduct Of The Prime Minister (No. 3)

EDM number 436 in 1998-99, proposed by Robert Syms on 16/03/1999.

That this House notes with concern the Prime Minister's Answer of 10th March, Official Report, c358 that there is a 'net tax cut of ú4.5 billion' for the coming year, because the total tax increase in the coming year is ú7.1 billion; further notes that the Prime Minister's claim not to have raised taxes but to have cut them has been described by the eminent economist Anatole Kaletsky as 'simply false'; recalls the Prime Minister's previous assertion that any Minister giving false information to the House would speedily correct the mistake; and calls on the Prime Minister immediately to correct his false assertion and apologise to the House.

This motion has been signed by a total of 62 MPs.
