Jeremy Corbyn | The 100 richest families in Britain have seen their wealth increase by £55.5 billion since 2010

Filed under: Statement

Figures just released by The Equality Trust show the 100 richest families in Britain have seen their wealth increase by £55.5 billion since 2010.

The Tories have cut taxes for the very richest since 2010, including cutting corporation tax for big business, cutting capital gains tax, cuts to income tax for the top 1% and cuts to the bank levy. Between now and 2022, this will have reduced the tax we collect by £70 billion.

At the same time, the Tories imposed a pay freeze on our nurses, doctors, teachers and all public servants. They implemented devastating cuts to our NHS and social care which is the cause of the NHS Winter Crisis we’re now experiencing.

Simply, Theresa May and the Conservatives have rigged the economy for an elite few.
