People face a cost-of-living bombshell while wages flat-line.

The Tories talk about levelling up but all people are experiencing is taxes going up and prices going up, especially fuel and energy bills as the Ukrainian crisis deepens.

Inflation could hit 9 per cent later this year and National Insurance will rise by 1.25 per cent from April.

And Conservatives have continued to force up council tax bills to replace their own cuts to council funding.

Labour suggests short term financial support to help people through tough times including removing the 5% VAT on household energy bills for a year from April.

Together with a windfall tax on the record profits of North Sea oil and gas producers, this could fund measures that would reduce the average household energy bill by £200.

While targeted support to low earners, pensioners and the squeezed middle would save them £600.

We would increase the warm homes discount on bills from £140 to £400 a year for low-income households, while doubling the numbers eligible to 9.3 million.
