Worst possible time for unfair and disproportionate NI tax hike

Responding to reports that Jacob Rees-Mogg called for the forthcoming National Insurance hike to be scrapped during a Cabinet meeting, Liberal Democrat Treasury Spokesperson Christine Jardine MP said: “This was an insult of a hike to every struggling tax payer from the day it was announced. Where was Jacob Rees Mogg then?

“People are already feeling the pinch from soaring heating bills, rising inflation and stagnant wages. This is the worst possible time to hike taxes that will disproportionately hit low and middle income families.

“The Tories must scrap this unfair tax that will kick people and businesses when they’re already down.”
