Jeremy Hunt’s statement today as the new Chancellor has done nothing to ease the concerns of people across the country or to undo the damage Liz Truss has wreaked on our economy over the last few weeks.
I’m hearing every day from constituents in Feltham and Heston who are worried sick about rising mortgage payments, bills, and the looming cost of living crisis this winter.
Labour have a fully costed plan for growth, which includes partnering with businesses through our new Industrial Strategy, reforming business rates, investing in our workforce, and making Britain a clean energy superpower by 2030.
You don’t have to hear it from me – hear it from the Chair of Tesco, John Allan, who said on Sunday that Labour are ‘the only team on the field’ when it comes to having a plan for growth.
A fourth Chancellor in the space of a year isn’t what Feltham and Heston needs. We need a Labour Government, with the leadership and ideas to fix our economy and get us out of this mess.
