From nationwide insurance coverage to migration: Key takeaways from Conservatives normal election manifesto

Tax cuts outlined within the Conservative Party manifesto would result in a second “mortgage bombshell,” Rachel Reeves has claimed.

Labour’s shadow chancellor mentioned the tax cuts outlined by Rishi Sunak earlier would gasoline further borrowing and ship the price of the common mortgage hovering by £4,800 over the following 5 years.

Speaking at a central London press convention responding to the Tory manifesto, the shadow chancellor mentioned: “The analysis that we have conducted since publication has identified £71 billion of unfunded commitments over the course of the next parliament.

“The consequence of an increase in day-to-day borrowing to fund the commitments made in this manifesto would amount to a second Tory mortgage bombshell, because higher borrowing at this scale would force the Bank of England to increase interest rates.

“The result would be an increase in the average mortgage totalling £4,800 over the course of the parliament.”
