'I present to the House a Budget for Britain's future; a Budget that shows the perseverance of the British people finally paying off.'

Philip Hammond, Chancellor of the Exchequer

'What we've heard… are half measures and quick fixes while austerity grinds on.'

Jeremy Corbyn, leader of the Labour Party

'Through the Budget, the Chancellor is now using the strength of the Treasury to back small business.'

Mike Cherry, National Chairman of the Federation of Small Businesses

'While we hope the Chancellor's confidence that there will be a Brexit deal is well-placed, firms have to look at all possible scenarios and will be deeply disappointed to see no funds have been allocated to helping them map out potential outcomes.'

Stephen Martin, Director General of the Institute of Directors

'In an atmosphere of unprecedented uncertainty and heightened political noise, the Chancellor has demonstrated that he is listening to business concerns by delivering a Budget that supports investment and growth.'

Dr Adam Marshall, Director General of the British Chambers of Commerce
