Bishop opposes 'unfair' tax cap

The Lord Bishop says he's opposed to the government's income tax cap for the Island's richest residents.

Speaking on Manx Radio's Sunday Opinion programme, he says he'd rather the wealthiest paid more tax in order to safeguard public services.

Lord Bishop Robert  Paterson says the current system means the most anybody can pay in income tax currently stands at £125,000 a year.

But he says that's not a fair way to pay for our government.
