CPI unchanged – John McDonnell comments

John McDonnell MP, Labour’s Shadow Chancellor, responding to news of inflation at 1.7 per cent in September, said:

“As prices rise, individuals and families still face living standards that are worse than before the financial crisis.

“Savage cuts have created a decade of decay in our public services, with problems in our economy compounded by the way the Tories have bungled Brexit over the past three years.

“We’re doing everything within our power to take No Deal Brexit off the table – and then we look forward to an election, and a Labour government with a plan to rebuild Britain.”
