But the Deputy Leader herself billed the taxpayer £351.32 for her gas and electricity bill between the months of March and June 2022, despite receiving an £82,000 per year taxpayer-funded salary.

But Labour Shadow Chancellor Rachel Reeves said “the mess we are in is not just a result of 12 weeks of Conservative chaos but 12 years of Conservative economic failure”.
