Budget 2013: Osborne to unveil extra £2.5bn in cuts

Budget 2013: Osborne to unveil extra £2.5bn in cuts | Policy@Manchester | Scoop.it

The government is to announce further spending cuts in Wednesday's Budget, with the savings going to large-scale infrastructure projects designed to boost economic growth.

Most Whitehall departments will have to cut 2% of their spending over the next two years, amounting to about £2.5bn.

But health, schools and HM Revenue & Customs budgets will be unaffected.

The cuts come on top of the 3% spending reductions announced for the next two years in last year's Autumn Statement.

In its 2010 spending review, the government originally announced departmental spending cuts averaging 19% - equivalent to £81bn - up to 2014-2015.

Chancellor George Osborne told his colleagues of the new austerity measures at Tuesday's cabinet meeting.

Overseas aid will also be shielded from the cuts, while local government and police budgets will be protected for the first year...
