Danger of lost decade as manufacturing stagnates – Manufacturing’s miserable start to the year shows little sign of ending, high-lighting the chancellor’s lack of progress in rebalancing the economy as he delivers his Budget statement.

Output fell for the second consecutive month in May, as the sector struggled against subdued demand and the strength of sterling, languishing 4.6 per cent below its 2008 peak. Production was down by 0.6per cent compared with the previous month, following a 0.3 per cent decline in April.

Plans on apprenticeships spark anger – Employers have raised concerns about the chancellor’s plan to fund apprenticeships through a levy on large businesses, warning the policy is a “blunt tool” in driving up standards of vocational training.

Vehicle excise duty overhaul catches up with technology – The Chancellor has reinstated a dedicated road tax in the UK for the first time since the 1930s, overhauling levies on new cars and pledging to use the money to improve Britain’s highway network.

More than two-thirds of cars sold in the UK now have such low carbon-emission ratings that they pay no vehicle excise duty for the first year, putting pressure on revenues raised by the Treasury from motoring taxes.

To address the falling receipts, George Osborne said that the government would introduce from April 2017 a banding system pegged to emissions in one of the biggest reforms of motoring taxation in recent years.

Tax cuts for middle classes – First Tory budget since 1996 aims to ease austerity pain
