Cost of Living Crisis
This month, I have been challenging the government on the cost of living crisis and its failure to tackle income inequality. At Work and Pensions questions
, I challenged the Minister on the spiralling cost of living, as rising rents and increasing energy bills meant many households in Luton South are struggling to make ends meet.
I also questioned the Chancellor about the government's failure to tackle income inequality over the past decade. At the same time that the Tories are making workers pay more in National Insurance contributions, they are giving away a £4 billion tax cut to banks' profits through a reduction to the bank surcharge.
