Autumn Statement - Brexit Black hole appears

Today's Autumn Statement revealed a Brexit shaped black hole in the government’s spending plans and it is East of England families who will have to shoulder the burden.

Alex Mayer MEP said:

“In the first Autumn Statement after Brexit we saw the Tories predict slower growth, higher inflation, weaker tax receipts and an eye watering extra £122 billion in borrowing. Welcome to Britain’s Brexit black hole.

“This is bad news for families across the East of England and bad news for our public services. The chancellor didn't announce any new resources for our NHS. In fact, forget an extra £350 million a week for the NHS - Brexit is costing us all an extra £226 million a week."
