The comments made by Anneliese Dodds, the Shadow Chancellor of the Exchequer, on 15 January 2021.
The UK has already had the worst recession of any major economy and now we’re in danger of a devastating double dip. That’s the cost of this Conservative Government’s incompetence and indecision.
Instead of securing our economy, the Chancellor is winding down economic support and hitting families with a triple hammer blow of pay freezes, a cut to universal credit and a hike in council tax.
Labour’s priorities would be the priorities of the British people: securing our economy, protecting our NHS and rebuilding our country.
