Income inequality growing – McDonnell responds

John McDonnell MP, Labour’s Shadow Chancellor, responding to new ONS figures showing an increase in income inequality in the financial year ending 2018, said:


“Today’s evidence of surging income inequality shows that this Tory government is not creating an economy that works for the many.

“With falling business investment, downgraded forecasts of growth, and a manufacturing recession, we have an economy in tatters.

“The next Labour government will be committed to a fair taxation system, and building an inclusive, transformative economy.”
