Peter Dowd responds to latest public sector finance figures

Peter Dowd, Labour’s Shadow Chief Secretary to the Treasury, commenting on the latest UK public sector finance figures, said:

“With borrowing on the rise again it’s clear that continuing with another five years of cuts won’t deliver us the economy that Britain needs and deserves.”

“The Government must use its next Budget to end austerity once and for all, scrapping Universal Credit and properly funding our public services.”
