Delyn MP David Hanson has today welcomed the Pre-Budget Report as real help for people and business through tough times.
The Government has set out action to help families and businesses through the tough times caused by the global credit crunch
- by helping people, and putting money into the economy now so we come out of this sooner and stronger and;
- once the economy is growing again, tackling the public finance problems caused by the credit crunch, in a way that is fair to all.
David Hanson said:
“Given the worldwide forces hitting the UK economy nationally and locally, I welcome the Chancellor’s budget proposals today – which means real help homeowners, to protect jobs and businesses.
“I especially welcome the special payment to all pensioners in Delyn constituency of £60 on top of the Christmas bonus of £10. Families of disabled children will also receive this extra cash boost.
“All families in Delyn will benefit from the increase in Child Benefit which will start straight after Christmas.
“And the huge cut in VAT will provide a welcome boost to the economy locally. I am pleased that the government is taking action and offering real help right now when it is needed.”
