Just to reiterate, it's not £1 million (which is bad enough), it's £2 million for married couples. At a time when they claim that the public finances can't cope with such give-aways. Here's a quote from the Telegraph article:
The detail of the Tory plan was uncovered by Clive Scott-Hopkins, a retired financial adviser and Telegraph reader.
Earlier this year, Mr Scott-Hopkins wrote to Theresa May, shadow leader of the House of Commons asking how the Tory tax plans would affect married couples.
She wrote back, saying: "I am happy to confirm that our inheritance tax proposal will introduce a threshold of £1m per person (not per couple).
"This means that it would be possible for a married couple to enjoy a threshold of £2m."
Conservative Campaign Headquarters confirmed that the £1 million limit would transfer to the surviving spouse.
A Tory spokesman admitted that the party had not publicised the detail of the now-famous plan.
He said: "We would keep the automatic transferability of the nil rate band, if it is still in place when we inherit, and we would raise the nil rate band to £1m per person.
"This has always been our position; it's just that we haven't shouted about it."
Time for Labour to shout about it now?
