MP Damien Moore, has commented on the Chancellorís 2022 Autumn Statement

THE Member of Parliament for Southport, Damien Moore, has commented on the Chancellorís 2022 Autumn Statement, said:- "Last week, along with colleagues I wrote to the Chancellor to insist that spending on education should not be cut, but indeed should be increased. I'm very pleased to hear him announce that the schoolsí budget will grow by £4 billion over the next 2 years. Southportís children only get one shot at their School education, and it is right that we do everything we can to support them. In addition, as part of the Governmentís fair plan to tackle inflation and restore economic stability, helping those who need it by ensuring that people across the country and indeed Southport are protected, I warmly welcome the Chancellorís commitments to:-

     Support every household with higher energy bills by extending the Energy Price Guarantee until April 2024, with an extra £12 billion for the most vulnerable.

     Uprate benefits in line with inflation.

     Protect the pensions Triple Lock.

     Invest an additional £7.7 billion in health and social care over the next 2 years.

     Boost growth with over £600 billion in capital investment over the next 5 years.

     Provide a £14 billion business rates package to support high streets.

The OBR expects this package to reduce peak inflation and unemployment, and to raise GDP. Crucially, this statement makes clear that those who need support will continue to get that support, and shows that you donít have to choose between a strong economy or good public services; with a Conservative Government, you get both. I'm confident that the provisions announced today will help us ensure good public services while also getting our finances under control, so that ultimately we can introduce appropriate tax cuts when the time is right. I realise however that times are still tough for many now, and I would remind everyone in Southport who needs help that I am always available by telephone and by email, and that I run a weekly advice surgery in The Atkinson library, 11am to 2pm every Friday. No appointment is necessary, and you can simply turn up.Ē
