Government delays Budget infrastructure plan – McDonnell responds

Shadow Chancellor John McDonnell MP, responding to news that the Government has delayed the Budget infrastructure plan, said:

“This is absolute chaos in government.

“We are facing the threat of climate change and an economy at risk of recession. That’s why we desperately need an immediate start to large scale infrastructure investment.

“Delaying implementation of investment is unacceptable.”
