Tax promises broken, says Labour

6:29 pm on 29 April 2009

The Labour Party has used question time in Parliament on Wednesday to accuse National of breaking key election promises.

But Prime Minister John Key has defended the Government's record and says it is showing good economic leadership in time of recession.

Labour Party leader Phil Goff says National is going back on its election promises, including a plan to cut taxes again next year and the year after.

But Mr Key says the Government has kept its promises, including cutting taxes on 1 April this year.
