Responding to the Office for National Statistics’s (ONS) Public Sector Finances April 2022, John O’Connell, chief executive of the TaxPayers' Alliance, said:
“These figures lay bare the economic headroom to support Brits struggling with a cost of living crisis.
“Taxpayers are crying out for immediate action, and the increasing tax take gives the chancellor the opportunity to press ahead with much needed tax cuts.
“If the government wants to boost growth and help households, they can deliver both right now by bringing forward the planned income tax cut.”
