'I don't recognise that': Rishi Sunak pressed on possible pre-election reversal of tax rises

Guardian, 28 Feb 2021
Rishi Sunak dismissed reports he had told a group of Conservative MPs that raising taxes in the 2021 budget would allow him to cut them ahead of the 2024 election. Asked by the BBC's Andrew Marr whether he had made the comments, the UK chancellor said: 'No, I don't recognise that.'
