No economic rationale for the Conservatives’ approach to the economy – McDonnell

Shadow Chancellor John McDonnell MP, responding to the Institute for Fiscal Studies Green Budget, said:

“The government’s agenda for tax cuts will be simply robbing our public services to put money into the pockets of the wealthiest in society.

“The IFS has made it clear there is no economic rationale for the Conservatives’ approach to the economy.

“And at the same time they are putting the whole of the economy at risk with a dangerous No Deal Brexit.”
