Liz calls for a real plan for growth after the Chancellor’s Autumn Statement

Yesterday I spoke to both ITV News Central and BBC East Midlands Today about the Chancellor’s Autumn Statement. 

My constituents and people across the East Midlands are having to pay the price for the Conservatives crashing the economy, with rising bills, energy prices and mortgages.

Yet all we got yesterday was more of the same from the Tories: more taxes on working people, low investment in public services and not the support businesses need. 

We need a fresh start and a proper plan for growth. You can see Labour’s Shadow Chancellor, Rachel Reeves, set out our alternative here.
