TaxPayers’ Alliance responds to Keir Starmer’s conference speech

For immediate release


Responding to Keir Starmer’s speech to the Labour Party conference, John O’Connell, chief executive of the TaxPayers' Alliance, said:

“Starmer’s speech was big on pledges but short on policies.

“The Labour leader is right that taxpayers are concerned about the cost of living, and they will be pleased with his principle that working people and small firms shouldn’t be hammered by high taxes.

“But politicians of all parties need to explain exactly how they plan to cut Britain’s record tax burden.”
