伍斯特郡對秋季聲明的反應不一

來自哈格利的護士傑恩-紐曼告訴BBC。"如果你在領取福利,你已經得到了增加。但是,處於中間位置的人,也就是那些不得不做更多工作的人,他們必須加班加點,只是為了把暖氣打開。

他說。"財政大臣認識到他必須通過凍結稅收的門檻來籌集更多的資金,但他也認識到那些享受全民信貸的人和那些享受國家養老金的人的需求,將他們的津貼增加了10.1%。

"我還覺得,在對基礎設施的投資方面,這是一個大拇指。我相信......他們將在未來五年內花費......在未來五年內,他們將在基礎設施上花費6000億,並將繼續進行通往曼徹斯特的HS2項目和東西鐵路的建設。

伍斯特市的職業治療師和兩個孩子的母親貝絲-皮克斯(Beth Pickess)說,她的擔憂集中在衛生和教育資金方面,以及資金是否會 "像政府可能打算的那樣延伸"。

她說。"我真的很擔心,這實際上會如何影響我們的孩子,他們將進入學校或在受大流行病影響的學校。

"還有國家醫療服務系統的工作人員,我們如何能夠真正提供一個既能滿足我們作為專業人士提供的服務,又能滿足我們病人的需求,因為有這麼多的積壓和這麼多的工作要做。"

"但是,以現在的產假工資為例,在接下來的幾個月里,我們在這方面有點掙扎。"

"我們仍然選擇多付一點,只是為了確保我們在減負方面比我們能做的要少。


Nurse Jayne Newman, from Hagley, told the BBC: "If you're on benefits, you've got the increase. But it's the people in the middle, it's the working people that have to do more, that have to do their overtime just to put the heating on.

He said: "The chancellor recognises that he's got to raise more funds by freezing thresholds for tax, but he also recognised the needs of those people on universal credit and those people on a state pension by increasing their allowances by 10.1%.

"I also felt it was a thumbs up in terms of investment into infrastructure. I believe... they're spending... 600 billion on infrastructure over the next five years and are continuing with HS2 to Manchester and also the East-West Rail link."

Occupational therapist and mother-of-two Beth Pickess, of Worcester, said she had concerns centred around health and education funding, and whether sums would "actually stretch as far as the government might intend".

She said: "I'm really worried for how that's actually gonna affect our children that are going into schools or at schools that have been affected by the pandemic.

"Also staff in the NHS, how we can actually deliver a service that is fulfilling for us as professionals to provide, but also meets the needs of our patients, because there is such a backlog and so much work to be done."

"But with maternity pay as it is, for example, for the next few months we're struggling a little bit with that."

"We have still chosen to pay a little bit more just to make sure that we're sort of less in the minus than we could be.
