Shadow Chancellor criticises government 'infighting'

Anneliese Dodds has criticised the government for focusing on "internal squabbling" rather than "sorting out the problems facing our country".

Her comments come following the dramatic resignation of director of communications Lee Cain amid a bitter internal power struggle in Downing Street.

The Shadow Chancellor added that "this kind of infighting is really quite extraordinary at such a critical time for our country".

Labour: Budget did nothing to build confidence for future

Shadow Chancellor Anneliese Dodds has criticised Rishi Sunak's Budget for failing to build confidence for the future. The Labour MP labelled Wednesday's Budget as "very short termist" adding it "wasn't looking forward". Agreeing with Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer, Ms Dodds said "this needed to be a budget that fixed those weakened foundations" but failed to have "a plan around those really important issues; household finances, securing those jobs for the future and re-building our NHS."

Anneliese Dodds has said she is "concerned" about the lack of clarity around economic support for businesses as lockdown restrictions ease. On Monday Prime Minister Boris Johnson set out the roadmap for getting England out of coronavirus lockdown, but the Shadow Chancellor is concerned that without proper economic support, more job losses could be seen.

'The Chancellor needs to learn from the past' says Labour

Anneliese Dodds has called on Chancellor Rishi Sunak to "act now" and learn from his past mistakes after the Office for National Statistics reported the UK's economy shrunk faster than at any point in 100 years in 2020. The Shadow Chancellor criticised Mr Sunak for taking "far too long" over extending the furlough scheme. "Leaving his policy around furlough until five hours before that scheme was due to end" she said; "We can't have that again". Ms Dodds said the Chancellor needs to extend the business rates holiday and VAT reduction. "He also needs to commit to a smarter furlough scheme" she added; "one that will be in place while we have those restrictions on economic activity". The Shadow Chancellor also said Mr Sunak "has to do far more to create new jobs". Report by Thomasl.

UK Government Faces Backlash Over 1% NHS Staff Pay Rise

The government is facing a furious backlash after calling for NHS staff in England to be restricted to a pay rise of just 1%. Ministers defended the proposal at a time when the economy was under "huge pressure" as a result of the coronavirus pandemic. But health service unions said the proposed award as a "kick in the teeth" for staff who had given "absolutely everything" over the past year to keep the public safe. The Royal College of Nursing, the UK’s largest nursing union, is to set up a £35 million industrial action fund in response to the government’s proposal. Report by Avagninag.
