Watch: My speech in the budget debate

JR_Pic_2.jpgYesterday (Tuesday 14th July) I spoke in the House of Commons during the debate on the Government's emergency budget. Whilst there were some aspects of the budget I support, such as the ending of permanent non-Dom status, overall this is a budget that will do more harm than good to people in Stalybridge, Hyde, Mossley, Dukinfield and Longdendale.

In particular, I believe the replacement of university grants with loans is unacceptable, along with the Government's failure to tackle the country's housing crisis, the lack of commitment to the Northern Powerhouse initiative, and the changes to tax credits that will hit ordinary working families especially hard.
