The Autumn 2018 Budget

The October 2018 Budget remains overwhelmingly the Pre-Brexit Budget

With huge uncertainty and a great deal of water to pass under the bridge before Brexit on 29 March, The Chancellor has already said that in the event of a No Deal Brexit, there will have to be a second Budget.

Also, No 10 says this is the Budget to end austerity “irrespective of a deal” on Brexit. However, Mr Hammond is under pressure to spell out where the money for these promises is coming from and what ending austerity will mean in practice.

The first Budget from the beleaguered Conservative government following their narrow summer 2017 Election victory in July, fast on the heels of the first interest rate rise in a decade and the backdrop of  troubled BREXIT negotiations.

A clear vision is needed, but it is a difficult balancing act…. and the Government may struggle to get the Budget passed by Parliament
