Pat McFadden – 2022 Comments on the “Vanishing Chancellor”

The comments made by Pat McFadden, the Shadow Chief Secretary to the Treasury, on 10 January 2022.

Once again, when British families and businesses need support, the Chancellor has pulled a vanishing act and disappeared.

When the going gets tough, Rishi Sunak goes missing.

Labour would give families security by immediately cutting VAT on energy bills now – part of our plan to save households around £200 or more, as well as targeted support for those who need it most – with up to £600 in total off their bills.

Labour has set out a plan. The Chancellor is silent.
