Mr O'Flynn, who served in the same role at the last general election said: "I am delighted and honoured to take charge of UKIP's economic portfolio again.

"I am greatly looking forward to working with our manifesto team to produce the best economic policies for Britain and another robustly costed manifesto which bears down on public sector waste while finding more money for our priorities such as the NHS and defence.

"I shall also be speaking up against tax rises on working people. It is obvious that Philip Hammond is 

planning to use the election to free himself from promises made in 2015 not to raise tax.

"I have little doubt that he is planning to bring back the national insurance increases for the self-employed t

hat he was previously forced to abandon."
