Province to be worst-hit by Government tax reform

New research published has shown that Northern Ireland will be more badly affected than any other region of the UK by new tax and benefit changes, outside London.

The research by the Institute for Fiscal Studies and commissioned by Law Centre Northern Ireland looks at the changes to tax and benefits announced in the Coalition's emergency budget in June 2010 and the Comprehensive Spending Review in October 2010 and their impact on incomes through to 2014 and 2015.
