Gordon's reaction to the Tory-led Government's Budget

Gordon has given the following reaction to yesterday's Budget in the Blackpool Gazette.

He said: "The increase in the minimum wage is less than our commitment to raise it to £8 by 2020.

"What is strange is that George Osborne made no mention of investment in the NHS or how it is going to be delivered.

"Seventy-five-per cent of the cuts in local government funding have been in the north west including Blackpool, and we have around 400,000 working families  in the region who had their tax credits cut in the last two to three years. The idea he has been a friend to the north is belied."
