Government announces date of Summer Budget
The Chancellor of the Exchequer George Osborne has announced that there will be a Summer Budget on Wednesday 8 July 2015.
Mr Osborne admitted that it was unusual to deliver two budgets in one year, but said he didn’t want to wait to ‘deliver on the commitments we have made to working people’.
‘It will continue with the balanced plan we have to deal with our debts, invest in our health service and reform welfare to make work pay.’
‘But there will also be a laser-like focus on making our economy more productive so we raise living standards across our country’ he added.
We will keep you informed of the pertinent Budget announcements.
