The campaign explained the Government’s fuel duty freeze which ensures that motoring fuel costs are 13p cheaper in tax terms.
In addition lower taxes for lower earners will mean that those people earning less than £10,000 a year will be taken out of income tax altogether.
And the freeze in local government tax and the restoration of the link between pensions and earnings will help hard-pressed households and pensioners.
Harlow MP Robert Halfon, who held a stall at the Staple Tye shopping centre highlighting the fuel duty freeze, said: “The response from residents has been incredible. We have even signed up a number of new members to the Conservative Party.
“Residents are pleased to know that the Conservative-led coalition is doing everything possible to help with the cost of living, particularly on fuel duty and cutting taxes for lower earners.
“It’s a shame that Labour are hitting hard-working families in Harlow so hard with increased council taxes and increased parking charges.
“The Labour Party is even pushing for extra green taxes which would add £125 a year to everyone’s energy bills.”
