Budget date announced for 11 March
The Chancellor of the Exchequer, Sajid Javid, has launched the beginning of the Budget process and announced that it will take place on Wednesday 11 March 2020.
He said: “People across the country have told us that they want change. We’ve listened and will now deliver.
“With this Budget we will unleash Britain’s potential – uniting our great country, opening a new chapter for our economy and ushering in a decade of renewal.”
Government has stated that the Budget will prioritise the environment, and build on recent announcements to boost spending on public services and tackle the cost of living.
These include investing in new hospitals, training thousands of new police officers, funding vocational education and the biggest ever cash increase to the National Living Wage.Back
