Ms Nandy also warned that the government’s belated action to deal with the cost-of-living crisis was borrowed from Labor’s playbook, adding that Rishi Sunak, the Chancellor, should reverse the increase in the national insurance tax.
“Three months ago we pushed the government to introduce an unexpected tax to lower energy bills for families across the country,” she said.
“We’ve been told it’s nonsense, we’ve been told it’s totally unattainable – and now we’re being told it’s entirely possible and reasonable, and the Government plans to do it.
“We’re telling the Government: increase Social Security contributions, don’t raise taxes on working people, raise an emergency budget – and today the Prime Minister will go and make a speech wherever he goes, assuming the Government will in the next few weeks introduce some undefined measures to help people with the cost of living crisis.
“That sounds terrible after the measures we have asked for.”
