John McDonnell comments on OBR Fiscal Sustainability report

John McDonnell MP, Labour’s Shadow Chancellor, commenting on the OBR’s Fiscal Sustainability report, said:

“Today’s OBR report is damning for a government that cannot explain where planned extra NHS spending will come from.

“After years of underfunding our NHS, additional money is essential and so the Tories must come clean about whether the Chancellor wants to increase government borrowing, increase taxes or cut spending on other departments.”
