John McDonnell responds to Boris Johnson’s pledge to cut higher income tax rates

John McDonnell MP, Shadow Chancellor, commenting on Boris Johnson’s pledge to cut higher income tax rates, said:

“With our schools, care for the elderly and our police services at breaking point, Boris Johnson’s proposals to give a tax cut to high earners reveals how out of touch the Tories are.  As predicted the Tory leadership contest is becoming a race to the bottom in tax cuts.”

“Labour will put the responsibility for repairing our public services on the Top 5% and corporations, not add to the handouts the Government has already given the richest in society.”
