Andrew Gwynne, MP for Denton and Reddish, has slammed the budget delivered by Chancellor Jeremy Hunt yesterday.

The budget, set to be the last before the next general election, sets both the government’s spending plans for the year ahead, as well as outlining any changes to the tax system.

Figures from the Office for Budget Responsibility show households will be £870 worse off on average, under the plans announced by the Chancellor, giving 5p for every 10p being taken away.

Gwynne said:

“This budget has lifted the lid on 14 years of Conservative failure, with working people paying the price.

 

“Taxes are still rising, prices are going up in the shops, and bills are spiralling.

 

“Yet, this empty budget was utterly devoid of any measures that will help families who are struggling to make ends meet.

 

“It is time for change, it is time for a general election, and it is time for a Labour government to clean up this mess.”
