Speculation is growing about what Jeremy Hunt will announce on March 6 in what could well be his last Budget before the next general election.

After largely focusing on business measures in last year’s Autumn Statement, the chancellor is expected to be much more political by prioritising individuals — with national insurance, income tax, childcare and property taxes among the areas that could be targeted. 

Instead, though, he could decide to increase government spending and pare down public sector debt.
