“The warning lights are flashing red for our economy but the Chancellor is nowhere to be found. If forecasts are correct then Britain is heading for a winter of discontent.

“Now is the time to slash VAT to give families and businesses a lifeline. Instead we have a Government piling tax hikes and red tape on businesses which have barely survived the pandemic.”
