The Liberal Democrats have claimed the Chancellor’s speech at the Conservative Party’s virtual conference will have "disappointed millions who were hoping to hear how he plans to help them through this crisis."
Liberal Democrat Treasury Spokesperson Christine Jardine said:
“The Chancellor’s speech will have disappointed millions who were hoping to hear how he plans to help them through this crisis.
“Instead of an extension to furlough, measures to help the millions excluded from help or a boost to universal credit, we were instead given little more than a stump speech to aid Rishi Sunak’s career.
“The country needs concrete measures now to support the millions of people who are worried about their jobs and their family’s financial futures.”
