Budget Day 11 March
UPDATE – 13th February 2020
Following Mr Javid’s resignation amidst the Prime Minister’s cabinet reshuffle on the 13th February, the 2020 Budget will now be delivered by the newly appointed Chancellor Rishi Sunak.
‘I am honoured to be appointed as Chancellor of the Exchequer. My predecessor and good friend Saj did a fantastic job in his time at the Treasury. He was a pleasure to work with and I hope to be able to build on his great work going forward.’
Chancellor Sajid Javid has announced that he will deliver the 2020 Budget on Wednesday 11 March 2020.
The 2020 Budget will be the first to be delivered after the UK’s departure from the EU on 31 January 2020.
It is also Mr Javid’s first Budget as Chancellor, following the cancellation of last November’s planned Budget due to the General Election.
Mr Javid said:
‘People across the country have told us that they want change. We’ve listened and will now deliver.
‘With this Budget we will unleash Britain’s potential – uniting our great country, opening a new chapter for our economy and ushering in a decade of renewal.’
In the Budget announcement, the government said that it will prioritise the environment, and build on recent announcements to boost spending on public services and tackle the cost of living.
