Labour will cut taxes for ‘working people’, vows Sir Keir Starmer

Telegraph, 25 Nov 2022
Labour will cut taxes for "working people" when the economy stabilises, Sir Keir Starmer has pledged - as he said Labour will fight the next general election on economic competence.

The Labour leader also pledged not to try to seek a Swiss-style post-Brexit trading agreement with the European Union, as well as insisting now is not the time for a referendum on Scottish independence.

Sir Keir also said he did not want to see Labour MPs joining pickets to support public sector workers' strikes this winter, and urged his colleagues not to charge the costs of Christmas parties to their parliamentary expenses.
