Chancellor warns UK of ‘hard road’ ahead of Spring Budget

With just days to go before the spring Budget, the Chancellor Jeremy Hunt has said it will be ‘a hard road’ to return the UK to prosperity and played down the prospect of tax cuts in Wednesday’s announcement.

Mr Hunt has already set out plans to get people over 50 back into work – as well as childcare support for low-income parents and scrapping healthcare assessments for those with disabilities and long-term sickness.
