Delyn MP David Hanson has been asked by the Leader of the Opposition, Ed Miliband MP to support the new Shadow Chancellor, Alan Johnson MP, in the new Shadow Treasury team.
David Hanson said:
“I am pleased to be working alongside the new Shadow Chancellor on critically important Treasury issues at this time. The Tory led coalition will shortly be setting out its cuts package for the next few years; and in opposition we need to show that there is another way.
“Whilst we all know that the deficit must be tackled, the Tories are committed to an agenda of quick and deep cuts, which will impact on our ability to grow the economy resulting in the loss of thousands of jobs.
“Having worked with Alan at the Home Office over the last 18 months, I know what an excellent Shadow Chancellor he will prove to be.”
