The Liberal Democrats have said that they will scrap business rates to deliver the much needed boost to the hight streets.

Sir Ed Davey sill accuse the Conservative Party of “broken promises” on Tuesday during a visit to Tunbridge Wells.

Sir Ed said: “It is time to put an end to unfair taxes on our treasured high streets. For too long salons, shops and cafes have faced unfair tax bills on top of rising energy bills.

“High streets are the life and soul of our communities, but for too long they have been ignored and let down by this Conservative Government. We must restore our town centres by taking bold action.

“The Conservative Party has broken promises made to high street businesses. Yet again this is further proof that Conservative manifestos are not worth the paper they are written on.

“Our tax reforms will slash the burden on struggling high street shop owners, and instead ensure landowners pay their fair share.

“Only the Liberal Democrats have a credible plan for reforming business taxes.”
