Budget to be announced early
09 October 18  /  News

Chancellor Philip Hammond has brought forward the announcement of the Autumn Budget to avoid it clashing with the final Brexit negotiations in November.

The date of the Budget this year will be Monday 29th October, three weeks earlier than last year and not on a traditional Wednesday.

Hammond gave the date in a tweet, saying "I'll set out how our balanced approach is getting debt falling while supporting our vital public services, and how we are building a stronger, more prosperous economy".

We will be keeping you up-to-date on the Budget when more is revealed.
