What the budget means for you and your business
On 19 March 2014 the Chancellor of the Exchequer George Osborne delivered his fifth budget. He introduced it as a budget for “doers, makers and savers”, and would support manufacturers in all regions across the UK. Hardworking people will keep more of what they earn and more of what they save.
He said that support for savers was at the centre of the budget. He said that hard-won economic recovery will not be squandered in the budget which will be balanced by cuts with pay restraints in the public sector and a welfare benefits cap. The Chancellor spoke for just under an hour in a rowdy House of Commons. He certainly delivered for savers and these could be a good vote winner for him.
