Rachel Reeves

Member of Parliament for Leeds West

Rachel leads opposition to the Tory Finance Bill


Last night, Rachel led the debate opposing the Tory-led Government’s budget. Labour is calling for this budget to be fairer for charities, pensioners, and hardworking families across the country.

Rachel said:

“This budget is completely unfair: unfair on pensioners who are losing over £80 a year; unfair on businesses who are seeing VAT on their goods rise; and unfair on families who are seeing their child benefit cut. This Government is making millions pay more, so millionaires can pay less.”
