Coventry South’s Labour MP, Jim Cunningham slams a budget that fails Coventry

Jim_Cunningham_MP.jpgThe MP for Coventry South, Jim Cunningham has told the House of Commons that the Government's recent budget is “from a Government that has run out of ideas and is lacking in imagination.”

Jim Cunningham said;

“The reality is that there was nothing in this budget that will help ordinary working people. Under seven years of a Tory Government, we have seen wages fall, the inequality gap grow and now we see public and private investment falling as consumer and business confidence in the UK is shaky at best.

“This is a budget that does almost nothing for ordinary hard working people in Coventry South. It failed on housing, because developers are still in control, it failed on income deciding to keep low pay for thousands of my constituents and it failed on Brexit, offering to pay more to the EU but failing to set out what our future relationship will be.

“This is a Government no longer fit to govern. The sooner they give it up and admit it’s been a bad job, the better. Coventry can’t stand much longer of this Tory Government.”
