Workers £1,600 worse off under Coalition

Hull North MP Diana Johnson has responded to today's Autumn Statement by the Chancellor.

Hull North MP Diana Johnson said: "It was good to see the Chancellor starting to respond to Labour pressure on Business Rates, just as it was on pay day loans, fuel duty and energy prices. The Coalition has also copied the free school meals policy first pioneered by Labour in Hull, which Lib Dems and Tories had spent years denying was successful, despite all the evidence.
