Jonathan Reynolds responds to the Government’s ‘Plan for Jobs’ expansion

Jonathan Reynolds MP, Labour’s Shadow Work and Pensions Secretary, responding to the Government’s ‘Plan for Jobs’ expansion, said:

“The Government’s struggling Plan for Jobs has failed to hit its original targets; it is not creating the number of jobs needed and has failed to address the supply chain crisis Britain is experiencing.

“Giving himself an extended deadline will do nothing to compensate for the Chancellor’s tax rises, cost of living crisis and cuts to Universal Credit which are set to hammer millions of working families.

“Labour would create new jobs with our plan to buy, make and sell more in Britain to get our economy firing on all cylinders.”
