Charlotte MacKenzie, Labour’s prospective MP for Truro and Falmouth, today welcomed the Chancellor’s Budget statement.
She said: “This Budget secures the recovery – rather than putting it at risk.
“It builds a future based on growth and jobs – rather than leaving people to a decade of austerity. It sets out a clear plan to halve the deficit while protecting frontline services. The Conservatives refuse to match our pledge and continue to conceal their plan.
“We will make these choices in a fair way – standing up for the many, not the few. I particularly welcome the help for first time buyers which means nine out of ten people buying a home for the first time won’t pay any stamp duty.”
