Chancellor defends Budget after backlash over broken promises
No Chancellor is ever prepared to rule out the possibility of future tax increases
– Philip Hammond
Chancellor Philip Hammond joined Good Morning Britain this morning as he faces a backlash after revealing his first Budget yesterday.
Criticised for going back on Conservative promises made in the run up to the Election by increasing National Insurance - particularly targeting the self-employed - he told us he had "targeted an unfairness in the system" and that his focus was on the NHS and social care.
