UK Budget date announced

The Chancellor of the Exchequer, Philip Hammond, has announced that the Budget will take place on Monday 29 October.

Breaking with the tradition of a Wednesday in November, perhaps in a bid to avoid the ongoing Brexit negotiations, the government is expected to set out its plans 'to build a stronger, more prosperous economy, building on the recent Spring Statement and last year's Budget'.

The government announcements are expected to include updates on draft legislation and consultations, and proposed tax rates and reliefs.
