TaxPayers’ Alliance responds to Kwasi Kwarteng’s Conservative Party conference speech

For immediate release


Responding to Kwasi Kwarteng’s speech to Conservative Party conference, John O’Connell, chief executive of the TaxPayers' Alliance, said:

“The chancellor was right to try to reassure taxpayers of his plans for growth.

“But without a clear strategy to control spending, there can be no path to economic prosperity.

“Kwasi now needs to lay out his roadmap to get the cost of government crisis under control.”
