David Cameron has defended Chancellor George Osborne's Budget, insisting that it was "fair" after being asked to justify the freezing of age-related allowances for pensioners.
He told a school in Bradford, West Yorkshire: "Every granny in Bradford West, as around the country, is going to be benefiting from the biggest ever increase in the pension that comes in in April - an extra £5.30 a week.
"At the same time the Budget also delivered a tax cut for 24 million people in our country. We have now taken two million of the lowest paid people out of tax altogether so it's a good Budget for our economy and it's a fair Budget for all our people."
Would changes to personal tax allowance benefit all?
The Government's plan to raise the personal tax allowance is good news for most taxpayers, but the Budget won't all be plain sailing.
Soon we'll be able to grumble about what the taxman takes in considerable detail.
