Philip Hammond: Conservatives 'not deaf' to message at ballot box

20 Juin 2017

"I have ordered that more staff be deployed across the area, wearing high visibility clothing, so they can easily be found, dispense advice and ensure the right support is provided", May said after a meeting with survivors at her Downing Street office on Saturday.

Speaking on Peston on Sunday Hammond gave his view on the Conservative's recent election campaign. We have other proposals that we will now have to look at again in the light of the General Election result and in the new parliament.

The government is seeking to turn Britain's budget deficit, which was equivalent to 2.5 per cent of gross domestic product in the last financial year, into a surplus by the mid-2020s.

Among the plans it will reconsider are cuts to the winter fuel allowances and plans to replace the triple lock on pensions with a less generous system.

"Obviously we're not deaf". We heard a message last week in the general election.

He said he understood people were exhausted of the "long slog" of spending cuts, but added: "We have to live within our means, and more borrowing.is not the solution".

"More borrowing, which seems to be Jeremy Corbyn's answer, is not the solution".

They are able to fight Mr Trump's plans because energy policy in the USA is shared between national, state and local government. The tweet links to an article that discusses China's plans to produce clean energy as much as the U.S.in 2030.

He said: "We have never said we won't raise some taxes. Overall, we are a government that believes in low taxes and we want to reduce the burden of taxes overall for working families".

UK Chancellor Philip Hammond has signalled that the next Government is likely to increase taxes, saying that the "objective remains to bring the public finances back to balance by the middle of the next decade".

The Chancellor told BBC One's Andrew Marr Show: "My understanding is the cladding in question, this flammable cladding which is banned in Europe and the USA, is also banned here". And we will leave the EU.

His anger was evident in his criticism of his party for having not focused more on the economy, which has performed more strongly than predicted in the year since Britons voted by a narrow majority to leave the European Union.

If you're in the business of reading tea leaves, you'll have your work cut out in trying to decipher what Philip Hammond actually said today.

"No deal would be a very, very bad outcome for Britain, but there is a possible worse outcome and that is a deal that is deliberately structured to suck the lifeblood out of our economy over a period of time".

Commons leader Andrea Leadsom, who challenged Mrs May for the leadership before pulling out of the race, also refused to be drawn on the PM's future.
