Chancellor - there will be no spending spree

Posted on March 6th, 2017

There will be no "spending sprees" in Wednesday's Budget, Chancellor Philip Hammond has warned.

Mr Hammond said any surplus cash would be used to ensure the UK had enough "gas in the tank" for the coming years.

Speaking to the BBC's Andrew Marr Show yesterday morning, he also acknowledged social care budgets were under particular pressure but said this was "not just about money".

Labour said the Government was putting money aside to prepare for Brexit which should instead be spent on the NHS.

He also used a Sunday Times article to rule out "huge spending sprees".
