John Biggs AM: Chancellor's Budget "cannot hide the fact London families are worse off"

Commenting on today’s Budget from the Chancellor of the Exchequer, Labour’s London Assembly Budget Spokesperson John Biggs AM said:

“Whilst I welcome some of the announcements in the Budget, such as the money for housing, the Chancellor cannot hide the fact that after five years of this Government, London families are worse off and our public services and NHS are going backwards.

“London has a schools place crisis, our police force faces £800m of additional cuts and our NHS is on its knees. It’s perplexing that George Osborne failed to mention any of this in his speech.

“The Chancellor has missed his targets to reduce the deficit, meaning we have years of austerity to come. He wants us to think he’s done a magnificent job, but in reality we’ve had five years of falling living standards.”
