North-East Beds MP Alistair Burt has backed the Budget set out on Wednesday.

Mr Burt believes the Budget, delivered by Chancellor George Osborne will be a boost for the hard-working electorate.

He said: “We know from today’s unemployment figures that almost 98 per cent of the economically active population in North East Bedfordshire are employed, and this Budget will ensure these hardworking people will keep more of what they earn.

“I am incredibly proud of what we have achieved and the measures not only reward families, workers and savers, but also offer a big boost to businesses.”
