Finance Bill does nothing to end austerity – Peter Dowd

Peter Dowd MP, Shadow Chief Secretary to the Treasury, commented on the publication of the draft Finance Bill 2019-20 saying;

“This Bill does nothing to end austerity or meet the challenges of our climate emergency.”

“It is a dribs and drabs Bill from the dregs of a Tory government.”

“The country cannot continue to suffer this chronic inaction.”

“The only way out of this impasse is a general election, followed by a Labour government.”
