Contributing sentiments towards policy:

58% : It follows Mr Hunt cutting National Insurance by 2p in the autumn budget in what is seen as a bid to win over voters ahead of this year's general election.
56% : He said bringing down the tax burden would mean 'being responsible with public spending and showing that we are going to spend it more carefully', when talking to Sky News.
53% : Chancellor Jeremy Hunt has cut National Insurance for workers by another 2p from April 6.
53% : According to the Resolution Foundation, when this 2p cut to National Insurance sits alongside all the personal tax changes announced this parliament, people earning £27,000 to £59,000 will be better off overall.
51% : 'This will be a prudent and responsible budget for long-term growth, tackling inflation, more investment, more jobs and that path to lower taxation as and when we can afford that.'
47% : The announced cut to National Insurance is cheaper for the government than a cut to income tax because pensioners don't pay it.
