Today’s inflation figures are yet more worrying news for working people – Peter Dowd
Peter Dowd MP, Labour’s Shadow Chief Secretary to the Treasury, responding to today’s inflation figures, said:
“Today’s inflation figures are yet more worrying news for working
“Living standards are being squeezed, with inflation rising and
wage growth slowing. As a result, real pay is beginning to decline again,
contracting at the start of 2017 for the first time since August 2014.

this week Labour is announcing a real Living Wage of £10 per hour from 2020.”
