NE Cambs MP Barclay says Britain’s back from “brink of bankruptcy” and welcomed new Budget
STEVE Barclay MP has welcomed plans to reform the economy and to help families with the cost of living in the Government’s Budget.
Chancellor George Osborne announced a number of measures yesterday including a cut to fuel duty, introduction of a Fair Fuel Stabiliser and an increase in Personal Allowance.
Tax cuts for businesses, planning reform and more support for young people were also revealed.
Mr Barclay, MP for NE Cambs, said: “Last year’s Budget brought Britain back from the brink of bankruptcy.
“The Government is right to stick to the plan to get Britain living within her means and I am delighted that the Chancellor didn’t have to come back for more.
“Instead this year’s Budget sets out plans to back enterprise and get Britain making things again.
“By cutting fuel duty immediately and cutting income tax for millions the Chancellor has done what he can to help families now. This Budget has put fuel into the tank of our economy.”
