John McDonnell comments on the missing billions in the Conservative manifesto

More missing billions in the Conservative Manifesto:

Labour analysis has found further missing billions in the Conservative manifesto, beyond those included in The i’s story today ‘Conservatives face £70bn black hole after promising expensive policies without funding them’.

Shadow Chancellor John McDonnell, commenting on the Conservatives’ failure to budget their own promises, said:

“The Conservatives’ manifesto has austerity baked in and is missing any plans for the future of the country – especially the social care crisis which Boris Johnson promised to address.

“It also turns out that the costings document produced alongside it has a black hole of billions of pounds.

“With no evidence behind any of their figures, it looks like the Conservatives’ fake news approach applies to their manifesto too.”
