Government must stop the chaos and abandon its disastrous financial experiment, says UNISON
Commenting on the Prime Minister’s defence of the mini-budget and the news that public services may face ‘efficiency savings’, UNISON general secretary Christina McAnea said: “The government needs to take its head out of the sand.

Mythbuster: the budget
