Pat McFadden MP's comment on the Autumn Statement

I welcome the u-turns on cuts to tax credits and the police. The tax credit cuts would have hit 5,000 families in my constituency, many of whom are already struggling to make ends meet. 

The recent terrible terrorist attacks in Paris mean we have to reassess what we spend on policing and security and it's right that the Chancellor did not press ahead with planned cuts to policing.  Of course, as with every budget, you have to explore the detail and a clearer picture of all the implications will emerge in the next few days.
