Councillor Alan Jarrett, Leader of the Conservative Group and Medway Council, said:
“I am pleased to welcome copious amounts of positive news for the British people, announced through the Chancellor’s latest Budget. From reductions in income tax, and huge boosts to the NHS, to an increase to the National Living Wage and increased funding for our schools, I look forward to seeing these benefits realised for the people of Medway.
Once again, the Conservatives have proven themselves the only political party capable of balancing the books and committing to the fiscal strategy necessary to deliver economic growth – a particularly difficult challenge given the colossal deficit of over £140bn inherited from the departing Labour government in 2010.”
