‘I am pleased to report to the House on a UK economy that has grown in every year since 2010.’

Chancellor Philip Hammond

‘Today we have the indefensible spectacle of a Chancellor congratulating himself on marginally improved economic forecasts, while refusing to lift a finger as councils go bust and the NHS and social care are in crisis.’

John McDonnell, Shadow Chancellor

‘Businesses will be encouraged by the Chancellor’s report on the UK’s fiscal health . . . yet as deficit and debt levels improve, the Chancellor must resist calls to pour money into politically-attractive, short-term spending priorities.’
