Liz calls for a better approach to economic recovery

[11/03/2021 | No comment]
I appeared on Politics Live this week to discuss the latest announcements on NHS pay. Since the Tories came to power, nurses starting salaries have fallen in real terms by £840 a year. By giving NHS staff a 1% pay rise, the Government is in fact giving them a real-terms pay cut.
 
Cutting nurses pay and increasing taxes on ordinary people isn’t right. It won’t help secure the growth and economic recovery we need to get public finances back on track.
