Hammond’s extra tax giveaways for a wealthy few will exacerbate inequality – McDonnell
John McDonnell MP, Labour’s Shadow Chancellor, responding to reports that Philip Hammond is considering further inheritance tax giveaways, said:
“Only Philip Hammond would attempt to address inter-generational inequality by further exacerbating inequality. We need more houses to be built, not extra tax giveaways for a wealthy few.
“This is the completely wrong priority at a time when our public services are in crisis from Tory underfunding, and working families are desperately struggling with real wages still falling and household debt rising.
