IN the wake of an historic General Election in which the Conservatives and Liberal Democrats formed a coalition Government we asked chartered accountants Price Bailey to comment on the Emergency Budget.
Before the election the Conservatives declared that they would hold a Budget within 50 days of coming to power to show their intention to get to grips with the deficit. The date has been set and this will take place on June 22, however it is expected to be at the later time of 3.30pm.
The new government has made reducing the UK's record peacetime borrowing its number one economic priority. The "bulk" of the Chancellor's deficit-reduction measures would take the form of spending cuts rather than tax rises starting with making �6bn in spending cuts in the current year. These cuts are likely to come from reducing the size of quangos and cutting IT, consultancy and advertising expenditure.
Chancellor George Osborne commented: "A new, strong coalition government is going to do what the Labour government failed to do and let Britain live within its means."
