Sunak CBI speech: Tax cuts for businesses, tax hikes for families

Responding Rishi Sunak's promises of tax cuts for businesses in his speech to a CBI dinner last night, while not offering additional help for families, Liberal Democrat Treasury Spokesperson Christine Jardine MP said:

"Rishi Sunak is promising tax cuts for businesses, while hiking taxes for families. It shows he's completely out of touch with those struggling with soaring bills and fuel prices.

"Every day that goes without any extra support, more people are being plunged into debt and poverty. If the Chancellor was serious about helping people cope, he'd announce an emergency tax cut now."
