Responding to the Government's U-turn on plans to scrap the 45p tax rate, Katy Chakrabortty, Head of Policy and Advocacy at Oxfam GB, said:

“We are pleased that the Government has stopped, listened and understood that cutting taxes for the richest during a cost of living crisis is not the way to go. It needs to keep listening and provide urgent support to people facing poverty in the UK and those facing famine in other parts of the world.

“It is essential that ministers don’t seek to balance the books on the backs of people struggling to pay the bills and feed their families - public services, welfare and aid are all needed now more than ever.“
