The Conservative MP for Thirsk and Malton has hit out at Liz Truss’ plan to focus on tax cuts to tackle the cost of living – rather than targeted support for low income households
Kevin Hollinrake says it could see people end up on the streets
He’s supporting Rishi Sunak, the former chancellor and MP for Richmond in North Yorkshire, in the race to become the next prime minister.
He says the foreign secretary needed to stop offering “the magic money tree” to her supporters and instead look at how to help those most in need.
He told Sky News’ Kay Burley Breakfast Show: “Talking about tax cuts that would help a low income household to the tune of about £1 a week and while helping a household like mine to the tune of about £30 a week is simply not right.
“These people are going to be on the streets. Things are going to be that bad for some households. You’ve got to provide that target package of support.” He said.
