During the 2016 Budget debate this week in the House of Commons, Steve McCabe MP criticised the Chancellor’s weak budget and his plan for Birmingham.
Steve attacked the Chancellor for failing to deliver on targets that he predicted and said after eight budgets, Osborne has run out of excuses. Steve pointed out that the budget was further proof of the Tory economic plan for Birmingham and it was clear that there is no sign of rebalancing the economy.
Steve told the House:
“We have seen a legacy of 14% council tax increases, meaning an average of £162 for Birmingham households, to pay for his cuts to the police and social care. That is his plan for Birmingham.”
