Chancellor Vows to Prioritise the Environment as Budget Date Set

08 January 2020   (0 Comments)

Chancellor Sajid Javid has confirmed that the UK's next Budget will be held on 11 March, promising fresh spending across the nation's green economy.

Announced during Javid’s visit to Manchester, the Government claims that the next Budget – its first since the 2050 net-zero target was enshrined in law - will prioritise environmental spending alongside investment in public services.

Specific details regarding where new funding will be invested are sparse at present, but emissions-related measures given significant weight in the Conservative Party’s manifesto include carbon capture and storage (CCS), hydrogen, nuclear power and energy efficiency measures for the built environment.
