Response to Spring Statement

Many families in Wakefield are facing lower wages, higher mortgage costs and the highest tax burden since WWII. They needed a Budget which would deliver for them and unlock Wakefield’s potential.

Instead, the Conservatives have chosen sticking plaster politics, which will continue to hit living standards and deliver the weakest economy in the G7. The only permanent tax cut they have announced was for the richest 1% of earners, costing £1 billion and being paid for by working people already struggling with the cost of living.

It is clear that the Government lacks ambition and is out of ideas. They should get out of the way and let Labour get on with creating a better Britain with good jobs and growth across every part of the country.
