McFadden – Inflation figures show Government must put prosperity at the heart of its EU negotiations

Commenting on the latest inflation figures, Pat McFadden MP, leading supporter of Open Britain, said:


“So far inflation rises have been modest, but many commentators expect the Brexit effect to start feeding in through in the New Year. The sharp fall in the value of the pound puts up the price of imported goods, which in turn puts a squeeze on household incomes.

“It is important that those on the lowest incomes don’t pay the price for Brexit and that the Government puts prosperity, jobs and investment at the heart of its negotiating strategy with the EU.”
