"Tory-led Government's Budget is Too Little Too Late" says MP Lucy Powell

Lucy_Powell_parl_default1.jpg.ashx.jpgCommenting on the Budget Labour MP for Manchester Central Lucy Powell MP said:

“This Budget is too little too late. It does nothing for families in Manchester struggling to make ends meet. As millionaires get a tax cut this April ordinary families are being battered by food and fuel inflation and the slashing of support for families in and out of work.

People in Manchester are paying the price of David Cameron and Nick Clegg’s failed economic policy. This Budget has downgraded growth at a time when unemployment in Manchester is rising. Our economy is flatlining, prices are rising faster than wages, the deficit is going up and even our triple-A credit rating has been lost.

On every economic test this Government set itself, it has failed.”
