GMB Union has responded to today’s Spring Statement.

Gary Smith, GMB General Secretary, said:

“It’s time Rishi Sunak stopped fretting about being the next Tory leader and focused on providing real help for working people when they need it.

“His talk of tax cuts in the distant future may win votes from his backbenchers, but it does nothing to help people now.

"We’re in the grip of the worst cost of living crisis for 30 years, driven by an utterly predictable energy squeeze.

"With inflation out of control and getting worse people are crying out for help with their skyrocketing bills.

"Tory backbenchers may fall for his fluffy words, but working people know a false promise when they hear it."
