Jon Trickett MP, Labour's Shadow Cabinet Office Minister, responding to the publication of government figures on the cost of special advisers, said:

“This is yet another example of David Cameron failing to deliver the change he promised. He was elected on a pledge to limit the number of political spin doctors but he’s broken this promise, instead spending taxpayers’ cash employing more and more of them. 

“At a time when millions are paying more due to his failed economic policies it says so much about David Cameron that his priority is a tax cut for millionaires while employing more spin doctors to try and deal with the mess he’s making of government.

“With every day that passes it’s becoming more and more obvious that David Cameron can’t be the One Nation Prime Minister this country needs.”
