Inflation: Perfect storm facing families and businesses

Responding to new figures which show that inflation has hit 5.1% - its highest level in a decade - Liberal Democrat Treasury Spokesperson Christine Jardine MP said:

"Families and businesses are facing the perfect storm this winter as inflation soars and Covid surges.

"Boris Johnson cannot stand idly by while the cost of living crisis forces people to choose between eating and heating. 
"The Conservatives must offer hope to families this Christmas, starting by scrapping their unfair and manifesto-breaking tax rise coming in next year. 
"We also need an urgent package of support for caf├ęs, pubs and restaurants on the brink before more livelihoods are lost."
