ANNOUNCING his Budget on Wednesday, the Chancellor, Rishi Sunak, said that his measures would protect “the lowest-paid and most vulnerable”, who had been hit particularly hard by the pandemic.
On the podcast this week, Ed Thornton talks to the director of Church Action for Tax Justice, Dr Justin Thacker, about whether the Budget lives up to Mr Sunak’s claims. Dr Thacker assesses whether the tax measures in the Budget will actually generate the revenue needed to help those who are struggling financially, and asks whether enough is being done to fund areas such as social care and education.
