Cabinet minister Kenneth Clarke has backed away from comments suggesting that the Conservatives may not make good on a promise to give tax breaks to married couples during the course of this Parliament.


In an interview with the Daily Telegraph, Mr Clarke suggested that married couples should not "count on" receiving the break before the 2015 poll, claiming that he did not remember anyone in the Government promising it.
