Kyle Taylor, Director of Smart Brexit, responds to rising prices

Responding to news that people’s wages are starting to fall as a result of the falling price of the pound, Kyle Taylor, Director of Smart Brexit, said:

“With just 74 days until Brexit negotiations start the government need to move quickly to make sure that wages continue growing and the prices of everyday items stay as low as possible. When wages go down and prices go up it is always the poorest who are hit the hardest - this must be avoided at all cost. Theresa May must tell us how she is going to secure people’s livelihoods in her speech this week if people are going to trust her Brexit plan.”
