Correction: Labour tax threat – The Sun

An article, ‘LABOUR TAX THREAT Jeremy Coryn’s tax bombshell would cost the average Sun reader an extra £2,400 a year’ (11 Nov), reported that the “average British worker” pays £11,000 in tax, including “over £6,000” in income tax and national insurance.

The article suggested that these figures applied to someone on the median wage (£24,908).

This was incorrect as it did not reflect the actual amount of tax and national insurance contributions paid by someone on the median wage.

This correction has been published following an upheld ruling by the Independent Press Standards Organisation.
