We are facing a cost-of-living crisis – the prices of petrol, food and energy are still soaring, and people are worried about the future.
The Chancellor’s Spring Statement could have cancelled the tax rise and cut energy bills with a windfall tax on oil and gas profits.
Instead, the Chancellor confirmed £24 billion of additional tax rises about to hit – the highest tax burden in 70 years.
Yet again, the Chancellor has failed to address the cost-of-living crisis.
Labour would impose a one-off windfall tax on oil and gas companies – this would give people up to £600 off their energy bills.
Labour is on the side of working people in Sunderland and across Britain.
