Windsor MP Adam Afriyie has welcomed the Conservative-led coalition government's announcement for income tax cut.
He said 41,531 people in Windsor will benefit from the cuts as of April, with 1,681 lifted out of paying income tax altogether.
The coalition Government will increase the personal allowance to £9,440, meaning a tax cut of £593 a year for most basic-rate taxpayers.
Mr Afriyie said: "This is undoubtedly good news, but there is a great deal more to do to make life easier for hard-working families and businesses in these difficult economic times."
More than 50 street parties are set to take place this weekend across the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead and the surrounding areas.
An independent report into a Conservative councillor has found a breach of the Royal Borough’s code of conduct in a document seen by the Advertiser.
