Average family £110 worse off
Average family £110 worse off

New analysis from Bracknell Forest Labour reveals families in Bracknell Forest have seen costs rise  since the last election. Average weekly spending on items measured in the Consumer Price Index has risen 21% since 2019/20, leaving average household costs £110 a week higher – more than £5,500 a year. For many families in  Bracknell five more years of a Conservative Government is unaffordable.

And it’s not just the immediate impact on families – with less money to spend the local businesses struggle, leading to fewer jobs. The perfect recipe for a downward economic spiral.

Rachel Reeves, Shadow Chancellor of the Exchequer, responding to the latest inflation figures from the Office for National Statistics, said:

After fourteen years of economic failure working people are worse off. Prices are still rising in the shops, with the average households’ costs up £110 a week compared to before the last election. Inflation is still higher than the Bank of England’s target and millions of families are struggling with the cost of living. The Conservatives cannot fix the economy because they are the reason it is broken. It’s time for change.

Labour has a long-term plan to get Britain’s future back by delivering more jobs, more investment and cheaper bills.
