Liberal Democrat parliamentary candidate for Havant, Gayathri Sathyanath, said:

“Spiralling mortgage rates have been pushing families to the brink here in Havant.

“The aftershocks of Liz Truss’s disastrous mini budget have saddled thousands of households in our area with years of increasingly unaffordable monthly payments and the real threat of many losing their homes.

“This Conservative government has proven themselves utterly unfit to oversee our economy and it is families in our community who are paying the price for their staggering incompetence.

“The Prime Minister’s boasts about new inflation figures today will ring hollow to the thousands in Havant who have borne the brunt of the cost-of-living crisis and are struggling to put food on the table. The Conservative party does not deserve to be in office for a moment longer.”
