Peter Dowd responds to appointment of Rishi Sunak as Chief Secretary to the Treasury

Peter Dowd MP, Labour’s Shadow Chief Secretary to the Treasury, commenting on the appointment of Rishi Sunak MP to Chief Secretary to the Treasury, said:

“The appointment of another investment banker to the Treasury is to be expected from a Prime Minister who once said he was the bankers’ best friend.

“It is already clear that this is a government by the rich, for the rich, that will do nothing to end the misery of nine years of Tory austerity.”
