Next Budget to take place in March
The next Budget will take place on Wednesday 11 March, Chancellor of the Exchequer Sajid Javid has announced.
He is expected to set out plans in the March Budget to invest billions of pounds across the country to level up and spread opportunity, strengthen the economy and help tackle the cost of living for people.
Javid (pictured) 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.”
Payam Azadi, director of Niche Advice, added: “A lot of promises were made in in the run up to the election period.
“Let’s see if there was substance to it and if some of those promises will be kept, especially around housing.
“And let’s hope landlords don’t get penalised as they have done in previous Budgets.”
