Around 370,000 married people in the Derbyshire region will be handed a tax break worth £200 a year, as the Coalition finally delivers on its pledge to recognise marriage within the tax system.

Mr Osborne is also expected to cap next year’s rise in business rates at two per cent, rather than the 3.2 per cent they were due to rise based on September’s retail prices inflation rate.

He will announce plans to do away with car tax discs after 90 years, announcing they are no longer necessary for police enforcement of Vehicle Excise Duty.
