    As already announced, the amended improvements to the Square will ensure that the road will not be permanently closed and traffic flow, particularly at peak times, is not impeded.

  3. Cease paying income tax on Social Security pensions.

    The government responded on 15 May 2019

    50% of pensioners do not pay any income tax. Making old age pension exempt would not benefit those pensioners with the lowest incomes, because they do not pay income tax under the existing system.
