East Renfrewshire: MP calls for more support to help those struggling
Figures from the Office for National Statistics (ONS) show the UK Government spent less than it received in tax in the month, resulting in a public sector net borrowing surplus of £5.4billion.
Families in East Renfrewshire are suffering financially as the Tories fail to get a grip of rising bills and financial pressures while continuing to refuse to utilise what funds they have to offer up serious support.
The UK Government recording a surprise budget surplus presents an excellent opportunity to right this wrong. They must use this money to slash energy bills by at least 20 per cent, strengthen existing support schemes and scrap the energy price cap rise.
