Karl welcomes the Chancellor’s long-term economic plan to help hardworking people in Lincoln

Karl McCartney MP commented: “There is good news for people in Lincoln in the Autumn Statement today – the jobs tax on all young people under 21 abolished, real help for the high street, energy bills down, fuel duty frozen, and rail fare increases frozen.

“This is all welcome support, but as the Chancellor said the job is not done.

“We are only able to help hardworking people because we have taken difficult decisions to control spending. We are building a responsible recovery and our plan is working, but we need to keep going”.
