“Families are facing a cost of living crisis and Tory tax hikes are just months away. They need support now, not rhetoric about far off targets in 2030.

“The Government has failed to invest in some of the most deprived regions, in catch up funding for our children and in faster broadband for rural areas.

“Levelling up has been exposed as yet another of Boris Johnson’s empty slogans.”
