Salvini rules out wealth tax

We won't ask people for wedding rings says deputy premier

(ANSA) - Rome, October 11 - Deputy Premier and Interior Minister Matteo Salvini on Thursday dismissed talk of the government introducing a wealth tax to help finance spending measures in its programme.
    "There will not be any wealth taxes or withdrawals from the bank accounts of the Italian people," Salvini, the leader of the rightwing League party, told Radio Radicale. "We won't ask for wedding rings to save the country and we don't intend to take money from current accounts. It's all fantasy.
    "I have read fanciful, science-fiction reconstructions in the newspapers, but that's the beauty of the free press".
