Bridget Phillipson comments on latest inflation figures

Bridget Phillipson MP, Labour’s Shadow Chief Secretary to the Treasury, commenting on latest inflation figures, said:

“People are already feeling the effects of inflation, whether it’s at the supermarket, petrol pump or paying for home improvements.

“The Government must do all it can do to keep materials and other supplies moving to prevent the shortages that can lead to higher costs.

“Whether the inflation is temporary or otherwise, families should not have to pay the price for the Government’s lack of plan for HGV drivers and the costly red tape following their deal with the European Union.”
