Working people will be worse off after Autumn Statement announced

Shadow Chancellor Rachel Reeves has said that “people are still worse off because of tax increases” following Jeremy Hunt’s Autumn Statement.

Ms Reeves said: “We would’ve put more money into the National Health Service by getting rid of the non-domicile tax status.”

One of the key points from his statement was that the National living wage will be increased to £11.44 per hour and National insurance being cut to 10% in April 2024.

This will not necessarily benefit low-earning workers, despite the attempt to do so. She said: “working people are going to be paying more taxes at the end of this parliament than they were at the last parliament.”
