Theresa May used Prime Minister's Questions, Wednesday 24 January, to endorse the latest report 'The Cost of Nationalisation' from the Centre for Policy Studies.
Maggie Throup MP asked the Prime Minister if she agreed it would be reckless, when so much work had been done reduce to deficit, to follow Labour's renationalisation plans and cost the taxpayer over £170bn, a figure highlighted by our report.
Theresa May replied "£170bn extra, in order to meet the ideological desires of the Leader of the Opposition, would saddle people up and down this country with higher debt and ordinary people would pay the price"
Labour have refused 29 times to say how much their renationalisation plans would cost. But the independent @CPSThinkTank have revealed that Labour would need to borrow at least £176 billion more and services wouldn't improve. #PMQs pic.twitter.com/EwwyQPKPfy— Conservatives (@Conservatives) January 24, 2018
