"David Cameron has consistently argued that the proceeds of economic growth should be shared between tax cuts and investment in public services and that a dynamic economy needs competitive tax rates. It is encouraging to see that David Davis has now confirmed he supports that approach and that there is a lot of common ground between them on this issue.''
And then, according to PA:
"Conservative leadership candidate David Cameron arrived at a meeting with Tory faithfuls today saying it was not "sensible'' to promise tax cuts so long before a general election. Mr Cameron, in Tory safe-seat Bexhill-on-Sea, East Sussex, was referring to leadership rival David Davis's pledge today to cut taxes by £30 billion if he is elected as prime minister.
When asked about his views on Mr Davis's tax cut pledge, which he claimed would save the average family £1,200 a year, Mr Cameron said: "I do not think it is sensible to outline such proposals four years before an election. We cannot know the exact state the economy will be in, and whether or not it will be growing or shrinking. I do not think that is the right approach. These suggestions were made last time and they didn't seem to have much success.''
Speaking briefly as he entered the meeting with Tory members and other members of the public, Mr Cameron said the country needed a "dynamic and competitive economy'' in which the proceeds of growth should be shared between "tax reduction and extra public investment''."
I take it 'not'.
