“Today’s positive growth of 0.6% is proof of the underlying strength in our economy. We are building an economy that works for everyone with 3.3 million more people in work, lower unemployment in every part of the country, and wages rising at their fastest pace in almost a decade. Now our focus is on locking in this progress and ensuring people’s wages can continue to rise.

“That is why my Budget supports hardworking families by cutting taxes for 32 million people, provides more funding for public services – including a record-breaking funding increase for our vital NHS – and invests in our future with more money for transport and digital technology.”
