Higher inflation is threat to working people’s living standards – Jonathan Reynolds

Jonathan
Reynolds MP, Labour’s Shadow Treasury Minister
, commenting on The British
Chambers of Commerce Quarterly Economic Survey, which includes warnings about
rising inflation, said:

“Today’s
findings are welcome, however they include worrying warnings about the impact
of rising inflation.

“We
already know that higher inflation is a threat to working people’s living
standards, and today’s findings highlight the risk to businesses as well.

businesses need certainty and a plan from Government so they can invest in
their future, protecting jobs, prosperity and
competitiveness”
