People living and working in Trafford will benefit from the Budget as the Conservatives deliver on the promises made to the British people, investing in infrastructure, the NHS and public services across the borough.
The plans outlined by Chancellor of the Exchequer, Rishi Sunak, will get things done and provide security for now while laying the foundation for prosperity in the future.
The Budget marks the start of record level of investment in the people’s priorities - infrastructure, the NHS and public services – to ensure the promises in the General Election in December are kept and the potential of every part of the United Kingdom, including the Trafford, is unleashed.
Increases in the National Insurance threshold and the National Living Wage announced today will mean families keep more of the money they earn, while tens of millions of pounds of investment in the region’s roads, rail, housing, broadband and flood defences will ensure everyone can have the same chances and opportunities in life wherever they live.
Thanks to the measures taken at the Budget, someone working full-time on the minimum wage in the Trafford will be over £5,200 better off compared to ten years ago when the Conservatives’ came into office.
Conservative Leader on Trafford Council, Cllr. Nathan Evans said today’s Budget proves this Government ‘will get things done’ for thousands of families across Trafford.
Commenting, Cllr. Nathan Evans said:
“Last year’s election gave a clear verdict. Now the people’s Government is delivering a Budget which delivers on our promises to the British people – it is a Budget of a government that gets things done.
“Investment will reach record levels over the next five years, as the Conservatives commit to levelling up across the country – benefitting families and businesses in all corners of the country including Trafford.
“I am delighted that we have set out measures to support families and help them with the cost of living, while continuing to invest in Britain’s future responsibly – laying the foundations for a decade of growth and prosperity.
“This is the first Budget delivered outside of the EU for more than five decades. It sets out a clear, one nation, path for the Government to get things done.”
