Angela Rayner responds to the Prime Minister’s plan to ‘level up the country’

Angela Rayner MP, Labour’s Deputy Leader, responding to the Prime Minister’s plan to ‘level up the country’, said:

“After a decade of failure and broken promises, no one can believe a word this incompetent Prime Minister says. His rhetoric never matches reality.

“The Conservatives have choked the life out of our high streets, slashed funding for our young people, and acres of playing fields and football pitches have been dug up and concreted over.

“We all want life to get back to normal, but a few chairs outside cafes isn’t going to fix the glaring inequality that scars our communities because of the Tories’ wrong priorities.

“Labour has a plan to buy, make and sell more in Britain to get our economy firing on all cylinders and our businesses and high streets across the whole country thriving.”
