Early indications suggest that this is due to be a Budget divorced from reality - a massive transfer of income to the wealthy in the height of the #costoflivingscandal when millions on low and modest incomes are being hammered.

Tax cuts that disproportionately benefit the rich are not the answer to the crisis we face.

They don’t help the people who need it the most, and rob our creaking public services of the investment they desperately need.

The Budget today should do two things:

1. Provide additional protection for families on low to modest incomes via a £750 cost of living allowance to cushion the blow of rising prices, & boosting benefits to cover the increase in energy bills we have seen since last winter.
