He also suggested the National Insurance employee contribution threshold should be raised to £12,500 – in line with the personal allowance for income tax – saving the average full-time worker a further £462.
He unveiled the eye-catching policies at a Telegraph Live event on the future of the Conservative party.
He told the audience: “We, as Conservatives, are defending the enterprise economy and lower and middle-income, aspirational working Britain.”
