Labour will repay voters’ trust through actions, not slogans or gimmicks, says Reeves

Rachel Reeves has vowed Labour will repay trust from voters through actions - not slogans or gimmicks.

The UK’s first female chancellor delivered her first major speech on Monday 8 July, insisting that economic growth will be the government’s “national mission”.

“We face the legacy of 14 years of chaos and economic irresponsibility,” she said, taking aim at the Conservative Party.

“I know that voters’ trust cannot be repaid through slogans or through gimmicks. Only through action, only through delivery.”

Ms Reeves added that the Government will make the “tough” and “hard choices” to fix the UK’s economy.
