TaxPayers’ Alliance responds to the OECD cutting UK growth prospects

For immediate release

Responding to the Organisation for Economic Co-Operation and Development’s downgraded UK growth forecasts, John O’Connell, chief executive of the TaxPayers' Alliance, said:

“This downgrade should come as no surprise to ministers who have been warned time and time again about their damaging economic policies.

“Runaway spending and a 70 year high tax burden are suppressing growth and crippling households.

“Rather than tinkering at the edges, the government must bring spending under control and deliver the meaningful tax cuts needed to stimulate growth and support hard-working Brits.”
