Rachel Reeves responds to Rishi Sunak’s abrupt interview

Rachel Reeves MP, Labour’s Shadow Chancellor of the Exchequer, responding to Rishi Sunak’s abrupt interview – where he runs from a reporter’s questioning, said:

“Rishi Sunak is running scared once again. Instead of setting out a plan to tackle the Conservatives’ cost of living crisis – he dodges scrutiny and defends the bungling Prime Minister.

“When the Vanishing Chancellor reappears, he has a choice. He can continue his inaction and clobber our communities with tax rises and surging energy bills.

“Or he can back Labour’s plan to offer security, prosperity and respect to Britain – supporting families with fully-funded measures to save most households around £200 or more on their energy bills.”
