The Sunday Times says Mr Sunak’s plan to recoup the cost of the pandemic will include plans to raise the income tax by £6 billion.

Mr Sunak is also to set out a new tax on online deliveries, according to The Sunday Telegraph.

The Independent says the public want “big business and the wealthy” to bear the brunt of the nation’s financial recovery.

Elsewhere, the Sunday Mirror and Sunday People dedicate their front pages to the funeral of Captain Sir Tom Moore.

The Mail on Sunday reports new figures show one Covid-19 vaccine shot reduces the risk of hospitalisation “by more than 90%”.

And the Daily Star Sunday says England’s deputy chief medical officer Professor Jonathan Van Tam has become an “unlikely sex symbol”.
