TaxPayers’ Alliance responds to public sector borrowing figures

For immediate release


Responding to news that the UK’s public sector borrowing bill rose less than expected last month, John O’Connell, chief executive of the TaxPayers' Alliance, said:

"Better-than-expected borrowing figures give the government an opportunity to get serious about economic growth.

"Families and businesses are struggling with falling living standards and a 70-year high tax burden, and they need to know that there is light at the end of the tunnel.

“The government should clamp down on wasteful spending to leave the room for growth-boosting tax cuts."
