    Shadow foreign secretary Lisa Nandy says the Government’s budget will leave families squeezed from ‘multiple directions’.

    “What you’re hitting families with is a perfect storm where their income is going to be squeezed from multiple directions,” she said.

    Ms Nandy said the government must honour previous commitments to increase pay to NHS workers by 2.1% – but refused to say whether she would back any strike action by nurses.
