TaxPayers’ Alliance responds to Sunak’s statement as de facto prime minister

For immediate release


Responding to the Rishi Sunak statement as de facto prime minister, John O’Connell, chief executive of the TaxPayers' Alliance, said:

“Rishi Sunak’s commitment to fiscal responsibility strikes the right tone for anxious taxpayers.

“If the incoming PM wants to address the profound economic challenges, he must get a grip on the cost of government crisis and protect against the impact of excessive borrowing on future generations.

“In order to balance the books, Sunak’s first priority must be to rein in unnecessary spending.”
