Govt wants YOUR budget ideas

The Government will soon be delivering its first Spring Budget.  The Budget is currently scheduled for 11th March 2020.

However, during the election campaign as Boris Johnson toured the country, it was clear there were many good ideas being put forward, particularly from the Midlands.  For this reason he has provided the opportunity for local people to be involved in the Budget process.

The Treasury are calling for your ideas and recommendations on measures to help save taxpayers’ money, invest in EVERY CORNER of our country, and further increase the growth, productivity and strength of our economy in the years ahead.

If you are interested in taking part, sharing an idea or making a fully costed submission the link is here -

The more serious and actionable the idea, the better but whether it is a large new project or a small tweak, the Government wants to hear from YOU.

Ideas are accepted until Feb 7th, so there's plenty of time to get any final bits of research in before submitting your plans. Businesses, charities, NGOs, Unions and other bodies can also make submissions.

I would love to see what you put forward.  Please let me know about any submission that you make, so I can follow it up with the Treasury where appropriate.
