By 5th April 2015, this Government's increases in the personal allowance (for those born after 5 April 1948), is estimated to reduce the income tax liability of 26.1milion individuals. Of these, 3.67 million live in the South East region, this includes the unitary authority of Medway and the Parliamentary Constituency of Gillingham and Rainham.

These estimates are based on the 2011-12 Survey of Personal Incomes, projected to 2014-15 using economic assumptions consistent with the Office for Budget Responsibility’s November 2014 economic and fiscal outlook.

HM Treasury does not publish this information at constituency level.
