The Chancellor will reveal his plans for the year ahead next Wednesday, November 22, before the House of Commons.

Simon said: “The Chancellor is drinking in the last chance saloon. This is the final full Budget before Brexit and comes as negotiations with the EU reach crunch point.

“It means greater support for businesses, including measures to boost investment and productivity, so they are ready to fully grasp the great opportunities on offer once we are out of the EU.

OUR Managing Director Simon Boyd urged politicians to present a united front for Brexit negotiations when he appeared on the BBC’s flagship Any Questions programme.

He warned that some politicians were damaging the position of the UK’s negotiators by playing party politics and that some (past and present) were deliberately trying to undermine the process with the aim of keeping us in the EU.

Mr Boyd, who is managing director of Christchurch-based REIDsteel, appeared on the Radio 4 programme in Dorchester with Lib Dem leader Sir Vince Cable, Labour MP Caroline Flint and Conservative Party chairman Sir Patrick McLoughlin.

He sparked a lively debate when he insisted that Brexit could not come quickly enough and that the UK must be prepared to walk away without a deal.
