Javid’s No Deal money is an appalling waste of taxpayers’ cash – John McDonnell

John McDonnell MP, Labour’s Shadow Chancellor, commenting on the Treasury statement on cash for No Deal, said:

“This is an appalling waste of taxpayers’ cash, all for the sake of Boris Johnson’s drive towards a totally avoidable No Deal.

“This government could have ruled out No Deal, and spent these billions on our schools, hospitals, and people.

“Labour is a party for the whole of the UK, so we’ll do all we can to block a No Deal, crash-out Brexit – and we’ll deliver a transformative economic policy that delivers for the many, not the few.”
