The Living Wage Foundation has questioned the Chancellor's Budget announcement of the introduction of a "living wage".

Without a change of remit for the Low Pay Commission this is effectively a higher National Minimum Wage and not a Living Wage.
Secondly, what about London?. These changes will not help the 586,000 people for whom even the 2020 rate announced today would not be enough to live on now.
Thirdly, what about the two million under-25s who are not covered by this announcement?
And, lastly, do the tax credit changes announced today mean that the Living Wage needs to be higher to make sure people have enough?

The Lib Dems claim the Tory Budget is more "you're on your own" than "we're in it together".
A party spokesman said: "When today’s budget fireworks fizzle out, thousands of public sector workers, families and young people face another four years struggling to get by.
"If life is comfortable, if you have cash in the bank, if you have savings, or if you’re big business - today was a good day.
"But if you’re starting out in life, struggling to support your family, struggling to get ahead, unable to work, today things got a lot tougher."
