Amber calls for Chancellor to pause Loan Charge

MP FOR HASTINGS AND RYE AMBER RUDD HAS called for the Loan Charge to be paused while it is under review.

Speaking after her question to the Chancellor in the House of Commons chamber yesterday, Amber said:

“Many of my constituents have made it clear to me that the Loan Charge is seriously affecting their lives and families. I welcome the news that a review has begun, but I have made it clear to the government that they should pause the Loan Change while we await the verdict.

“I will not stand by as more constituents come to me with heart-breaking stories of the hardship they are facing under the Loan Charge. I was disappointed by the Financial Secretary to the Treasury’s response, but I will continue to campaign for my residents in this area.”
