The Chancellor will deliver this year’s Budget earlier than usual, in a bid to avoid important final Brexit negotiations and a special European Council meeting, set to convene in November.

A Monday delivery of this year’s Budget breaks away from tradition – typically, Budgets are held on a Wednesday, after Prime Minister’s Questions.

In a statement, the Treasury said that this year’s Budget will build on announcements made in the Spring Statement and the 2017 Budget in order to help build a ‘stronger, more prosperous economy’.

The 2018 Autumn Budget will be the second of its kind under the government’s new fiscal timetable: in 2016, the Chancellor moved the annual Budget from the Spring to the Autumn, abolishing the Autumn Statement and replacing it with the Spring Statement.
