McDonnell responds to government infrastructure funding
John McDonnell MP, Labour’s Shadow Chancellor, said:
“After nearly a decade of starving our country of the infrastructure investment it needs, the Tories have come up with this pathetic publicity stunt announcement.
When there are millions of people on our housing waiting lists and families with children living in containers, we need real change and real investment in our infrastructure, not this derisory drop in the ocean.”
