What they said

Reaction to the Chancellor's statement.

'This is the Budget of a government that gets things done.'

Rishi Sunak, Chancellor of the Exchequer

'The reality is that this is a Budget that is an admission of failure – an admission that austerity has been a failed experiment.'

Jeremy Corbyn, Leader of the Labour Party

'In deeply challenging times, the Chancellor has worked against the clock to deliver two Budgets in one: a first for national resilience today and a second for economic ambition tomorrow.'

Dame Carolyn Fairbairn, Director General of the Confederation of British Industry

'This is a pro-small business Budget, which has delivered a high streets bonus, a series of Conservative manifesto promises to small businesses, and emergency steps to support small firms through the coronavirus outbreak.'

Mike Cherry, National Chairman of the Federation of Small Businesses

'The Budget has addressed the immediate challenges facing the economy, but the Chancellor will have to do more to support businesses as they navigate changes to trading arrangements and the end of the Brexit transition period.'

Dr Adam Marshall, Director General of the British Chambers of Commerce
